Spice-Crusted Tofu

Spice-Crusted Tofu

Pantry ingredients and basic spices transform a package of tofu into a quick, simple meal - no slicing and dicing required.

Serves 4

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon pine nuts
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 14- to 16- extra-firm tofu
  • 3 tablespoon boiling water
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Toast pine nuts (see Tip); set aside to cool. Mix paprika, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Drain tofu and pat dry with paper towels. Cut crosswise into 8 slices, 1/2 inch thick. Dredge the tofu liberally with the spice mixture, coating all sides. Mix boiling water, lemon juice and honey in a small bowl.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; swirl to coat the bottom. Add tofu and cook on one side until brown and crusty, 4 to 5 minutes; flip and cook for another 3 minutes. Add the honey mixture to the pan (it will bubble up and evaporate very quickly) and shake to coat the tofu. Serve immediately, sprinkled with the toasted pine nuts.
