Ginger Sesame Marinated Tofu with Red Cabbage Ginger Slaw

Ginger Sesame Tofu

Half a block of firm tofu, cut into slices (however you please)
Chunk of fresh ginger
1 garlic clove
Small chunk of fresh turmeric root
Sesame oil
Shoyu or Bragg's Liquid Aminos
Fresh lemon juice
black sesame seeds

Cut tofu and pat dry, mix the ingredients above (just a little bit of everything) so that the tofu slices are fully covered in a plastic bag. Marinade for about 2 hours.

Pan fry!

Red Cabbage Slaw

~1 cup of chopped red cabbage
1 tsp salt
2 generous tbsp apple cider vinegar
chunk of ginger
1 small clove of garlic
fresh cilantro
fresh spinach
drizzle of shoyu/Bragg's Aminos
3 tbsp plain non fat yogurt
drizzle of agave (optional)

Massage chopped cabbage with salt and vinegar untill fully saturated and the red color starts to bleed. Grate fresh ginger and garlic and chop up cilantro and spinach. Stir everything up, add yogurt and shoyu. If needed, add agave.

Not a big tofu fan... But garlic ginger and cilantro make anything taste amazing. They're also extremely cleansing and good for a metabolism boost!
