$1.53 per serving

The toasted sesame oil and garlic update this hippie classic and give it terrific flavor! This meal makes it easy to get extra greens into your diet.


2 cups long grain brown rice

3/4 lb firm tofu, sliced in 1 inch cubes

1 bunch kale, destemmed & chopped

2 tbsp toasted sesame oil

3 tbsp canola oil

6 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp red pepper flakes



Pour rice into a small saucepan with 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Cover and let cook for 40 minutes.


Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with parchment or foil. Toss tofu cubes with 2 tablespoons of canola oil. 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, and half of the minced garlic. Make sure the cubes are well coated. Spread in one layer on baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.


While the tofu bakes, heat the remaining oils in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the rest of the garlic and red pepper flakes and let them sizzle for just a moment. Add the kale a handful at a time, turning frequently with tongs. Once kale turns bright green and begins to wilt, about 2-3 minutes, turn off the heat. Mix the kale with the baked tofu, tossing well. Serve over rice.
