Szechuan Slaw with Tofu

Directions

  1. Line a shallow baking pan with several layers of paper towels. Drain tofu; cut into 1/2-inch slices. Place tofu in the prepared baking pan. Place another layer of paper towels on top of tofu; cover with a baking sheet. Weight down by adding 3 or 4 cans of food to baking sheet; chill for 30 minutes. Transfer slices to a cutting board; cut into 1-inch pieces.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet heat sesame oil over medium-high heat. Add tofu; cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until golden and crisp, turning once. Remove tofu from skillet.
  3. For dressing, in a blender or food processor combine teriyaki sauce, vinegar, canola oil, and peanut butter spread. Cover and blend or process until smooth.
  4. In a large bowl combine green cabbage, napa cabbage, sweet pepper, red cabbage, carrots, green onions, and cilantro. Add dressing; toss well to coat. Add tofu; toss gently to combine.
