Cook tofu
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • While the pan heats, pat tofu dry with paper towels. Cut in half, parallel to the cutting board. (NOTE: You will have 2 square tofu "steaks" per block.) 
  • Season with salt, pepper and half the Zesty Garlic Blend.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil, then tofu. Pan-fry until golden, 2-3 min per side. 
  • Remove the pan from heat, then transfer to a plate. Cover to keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, peel, then mince or grate garlic.

Start  orzo
  • Reheat the same pan (from step 1) over medium.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, then swirl until melted. 
  • Add orzo, garlic and remaining Zesty Garlic Blend. Cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30 sec.
  • Add 2 1/4 cups (4 cups) water, then season with salt and pepper. Cover and bring to a boil over high.
Cook orzo and peas
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to medium.
  • Cook covered, stirring occasionally, until orzo is halfway done, 7-8 min.
  • Stir in peas.
  • Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until orzo is tender and creamy, 7-9 min. (TIP: If liquid reduces too much, add more water, 1/4 cup at a time.)
Finish orzo
  • When orzo is tender, add spinach and three-quarters of the Parmesan.
  • Cook, stirring often, until spinach wilts and Parmesan melts, 1 min.
  • Remove the pan from heat.
  • Stir in 3 tbsp (6 tbsp) pesto, then season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Stir in any remaining pesto, if desired.
Finish and serve
  • Thinly slice tofu.
  • Divide pesto orzo between plates. Top with tofu.
  • Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan.
