How to Make Asian Grain and Tofu Salad
- Marinate tofu in soy sauce and brown sugar for an hour or all day. Drain liquid into a separate bowl and save for later to add to salad. Pan saute the bean sprouts for 10 minutes or till lightly browned.
- Saute bean sprouts in 1 TBS olive oil. While bean sprouts saute, crush peanuts, slice scallions and prepare salad greens.
After tofu has marinated a few hours, slice into 1 inch cubes or larger depending of your tastes.
- To assemble, start with a thin bed of rice. Next lay down bean sprouts. Add tofu, sprinkle with peanuts and scallions. Add torn mint last (optional). Lightly drizzle with marinade. Enjoy
