Tofu and Asparagus Spears With Fresh Herbs, Ginger & Lemon Zest

Serves 1 – 2


8 oz. firm tofu, cubed
3 tablespoons soy sauce
6 spears asparagus, washed, bottoms removed
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon fresh Thai basil, chopped
Juice of ½ lemon
½ lemon, zested
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon sesame seeds


Preheat oven to 350ËšF degrees

Place tofu a bowl and marinade in soy sauce for at least 15 minutes.  Add asparagus, sesame oil, Thai basil, lemon juice, lemon zest and ginger to tofu, toss and let sit for another 10 minutes.  Transfer tofu and asparagus mixture to prepared foil.

Wrap and bake for 15 minutes, so asparagus still has a slight crunch and is not overcooked.
