Serve this simple sauté warm, or let it cool and take it along on a picnic for an elegant entrée. In seasons when asparagus isnt abundant, substitute broccoli florets or broccoli rabe. Try a grating of regular or soy Parmesan cheese to enhance flavors.
Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Cook tofu cubes over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, or until brown and crispy. Remove from pan, and set aside.
