Hoisin Tofu Steaks

with Sticky Rice & Spinach Poppy Seed Salad

Hoisin sauce is a salty, sweet, fragrant sauce commonly used in Cantonese cooking. Because it’s a thick sauce, it’s perfect for drizzling over planks of crispy tofu. When served alongside sticky rice and a simple spinach salad with sweet citrus and crunchy almonds and poppy seeds, it’s an easy, high-protein meal.
