Coconut Kale and Sriracha Honey Baked Tofu

IMG_3446

I first tried this coconut kale–inspired by this recipe–at my wonderful friend Meghan’s home. (Meghan also happens to be a fantastic cook and you should 100% check out her blog.) As soon as I tasted it, I knew: I was a kale convert. I mean, I would eat kale before, but it was never something I craved…until this recipe changed me. It’s crispy, it’s a little salty and a little sweet, and it’s mad healthy. And, it goes perfectly with some tasty tofu. I suggest serving it over rice, which I did, but you can’t see the rice in these pictures…trust me though, it’s there.

  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sriracha
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
