Cheesy Garlic Tofu Spinach Nest
12 Cups Baby Spinach (washed and dried)
1 Pound Extra Firm Tofu
Coconut or Olive Oil (or BOTH for added flavor)
6 Cloves Fresh Garlic (thinly sliced)
1/2 Cup Nutrirional Yeast
Sea Salt and Black Pepper

If you have a Wok, now would be a great time to bust it out.  If not, any old large saute pan should suffice.  Chop tofu into 1 inch cubes and sprinkle with salt and pepper and half of nutritional yeast and toss to coat evenly.  Set aside.  Thinly slice garlic, set aside.  

Heat a dash of oil in Wok or pan and add all spinach.  Cook just until wilted.  Drain any liquid and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Remove and plate in a pile "nest".  

Using same pan, add another dash of oil and heat.  Add all tofu, stirring and tossing gently.  When golden, add another pinch of yeast and thinly sliced garlic.  Cook until garlic turns golden.  Place tofu mixture a top spinach nest and sprinkle with remaining yeast.  Serve immediately.  Makes about 4 servings.
