Tofu with Sweet Ginger

3 cups water

1 (2- to 3-inch) piece of ginger, peeled and smashed with the back of a knife

⅓ cup brown sugar

1 12-ounce package soft tofu

  • Place the water, ginger, and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and let the sauce cook for at least 10 minutes. (The longer you let the mixture cook, the spicier it will get.)

  • To serve, spoon some of the tofu into dessert bowls and pour some sauce over the top. (This sauce is equally good over plain yogurt.)

Yields 3 cups of sauce

Soft tofu has the texture of a very thick yogurt. If you're lactose intolerant, it's the way to go. Plus it's high in protein and low in fat. Even the sugar content in this recipe is relatively low.
