Chef notes

Tofu is a great source of plant-based protein, providing about 9 grams for every 3 ounces. Better yet, studies show that soy may help to alleviate symptoms of fatty liver. Pair that with inflammation-fighting garlic and you’ve got a meal your liver will cheer about!


  • One 14-ounce package extra-firm tofu
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons crushed garlic
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper



Remove the tofu from the package and drain the water. Pat dry with paper towel and cut into 1-inch cubes.


Place the tofu in a large bowl with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, the garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Mixthoroughly.


In a separate pan, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil for 1 to 2 minutes, then add the tofu mixture.


Sauté until the tofu is browned on all sides, 5 to 6 minutes. Serve immediately.
