Spicy Slow-Cooker Braised Tofu

Serves 4
Time 7 hr
This easy make-ahead recipe is great hot with rice, or serve it cold over noodles tossed with sesame oil for a workday lunch.
Ingredients
  • 2 (1.0-ounce) packages extra-firm tofu drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 cup gochujang sauce
  • 1 (8.0-ounce) package baby spinach
  • 4 green onions thinly sliced
Method

Wrap tofu in several layers of paper towels, and arrange tofu on plate. Cover tofu with another plate or heavy can and let sit for a few minutes to remove as much liquid as possible. Repeat as needed. Unwrap tofu, discarding paper towels.  

Cut tofu into 3/4-inch-thick slices and place in the bottom of a slow cooker, keeping them in one layer if possible. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with gochujang. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours. Add spinach, cover and cook on low until spinach is just wilted, about 45 minutes. Serve tofu with spinach and sprinkle with green onions.
