Tofu in Spicy Apricot Sauce, Brown Rice, and Kale

I use a bottled Spicy Apricot Sauce made by a company in Port Huron, MI called Jabars. You can find it on their web site under “Spicy Fruit Sauces.” I originally found out about them at one of those city garage sales they hold in the public parking garages. It was either at the Royal Oak or Grosse Pointe sale. Now I just it order it from their web site.

It’s an easy dinner to put together. The rice takes the longest to make. I steamed the kale in my food steamer. I just put the tofu over low to medium heat in a frying pan, give the pan a spritz or two of non-stick cooking spray, and then pour the spicy apricot sauce over it. Cover with a lid or foil and cook for about 5 minutes on each side. I add more sauce after I flip the tofu.

And now for a fun link. Regardless of your feeling about the show South Park, this is so much fun. You can head over to the South Park Studio and create your own South Park character. This is not associated with the actual show. And in case you were wondering what I would look like as a South Park character? Wonder no more:

    That is so fun, the South Park gal. I haven’t watched that show for years (no TV) but i remember when it first came out and i did love it! The guys behind that show are fairly brilliant.

    Tangy, spicy ‘n’ sweet apricot sauce on tofu. Now THAT’s different. Sounds really good!

    You can make your own apricot sauces easily with a Champion juicing machine, a pinch of ascorbic acid, and some sugar. See The Jamlady Cookbook (Pelican Publishing, 2004) for Tangy Apricot Butter which also can be made as a sauce.
