Foil-Packed Asian Tofu

Once again I found a recipe from a magazine that Jennie gave me!! She rocks!!  Here is the original, which is nothing like what I made.

Foil-Packed Asian Tofu

1 container tofu, drained and pressed
3/4 cup Newman's Own Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing
3 cups warm water
2 cups millet, uncooked
6 cups frehs baby spinach leaves
3 garlic cloves, minced
12  sun-dried tomatoes, reconstituted with water and chopped
6 large basil leaves

Cut the tofu int 6 equal slices.  Marinate the tofu with the dressing for at least 30 minutes (up to 8 hours).  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spoon 1/3 cup millet on the center of each of 6 18-inch long pieces of heavy-duty foil with the sides slightly rolled up.  Pour 1/2 cup warm water over each mound of millet.  Top with 1 cup spinach, 1/2 clove of garlic,  2 sun-dried tomatoes, slice of tofu, and basil leaf.  Spoon a tablespoon (or 2) of dressing over the tofu.  Bring up foil sides and double fold to seal each packet.

Cook in the oven for 30 minutes (may need more time for the millet to fully cook). 

Enjoy!! This one is a Kristie original!! Why do I always forget to take a picture!!
