Apricot-Glazed Tofu

This is a sweet sauce that works well with tofu. Serve this dish over rice with some steamed bok choy.

1. Cut the tofu into 8 rectangles.

2. Lightly coat a nonstick skillet or grill pan with vegetable oil and set over medium heat. Grill the tofu until lightly browned, about 4 minutes per side.

3. To make the glaze, combine the apricot jam, maple syrup, mustard and apple cider vinegar in a small saucepan. Set over medium heat and simmer just until warm, about 2 minutes.

4. Serve the tofu drizzled with the glaze and garnished with the cilantro and apricots.
