  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced and packed

  • 1 bag florentine baby spinach, washed and dried when ready to cook

  • Season with the cayenne pepper and 1/8 tsp salt.

  • Mix the marinade well and pour it over the tofu.

  • Cover with plastic wrap and allow to marinate over night or for at least several hours, turning once.

  • Make the salsa now if you have time.

  • Peel the remaining grapefruit and oranges.

  • Use a paring knife to remove the outer membrane.

  • Work over a bowl to catch the juices, and cut between the membranes to release the segments.

  • Repeat with the oranges.

  • Halve each fruit segment.

  • Add the diced bell pepper, red onion, and cilantro.

  • Season with remaining 1/8 tsp of salt.

  • Remove the tofu and add the spinach to the pan.

  • Stir it around briefly so it just wilts, about 1-2 minutes.

  • Lay 2 triangles of tofu on top.

  • Spoon grapefruit salsa around the tofu and garnish with fresh avocado chunks.
