1 (14-ounce) package extra-firm tofu, drained
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon chili oil
8 cups fresh baby spinach
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon chopped cashews
Coconut Rice


Wrap tofu blocks in several layers of heavy-duty paper towels. Press with a heavy object for about 30 minutes to remove excess water. Remove paper towels, pat tofu dry, and cut into 1-inch cubes; set aside.

Combine cumin and next 5 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; add tofu. Seal bag; shake to coat.

Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil and chili oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu; sauté 8 minutes or until golden. Remove tofu from pan; cover and keep warm.

Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in pan; add spinach and garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 4 minutes or just until spinach wilts. Add tofu; cook, stirring until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with cashews; serve with Coconut Rice.
