  • 1 lb. firm tofu, drained well and diced
  • 2 large or 3 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup pitted sliced green olives

  • 3 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbs. dry white wine or sherry
  • 1 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. tomato paste
  • 1 Tbs. rice vinegar

Prepare some quinoa or quick-cooking brown rice to serve as a bed of grains for this dish. You can also steam any leftover vegetables from the week, such as asparagus, carrots or peas.

  1. In large nonstick skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add leeks and cook until tender, stirring often, about 8 minutes.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve hot.
