    In a medium size bowl, blend Five Spice Powder, Salt, Ginger, Coriander and Pepper. Add Tofu Squares and stir to coat evenly with spice rub.
  2. 2Salad
    Toss Kale and Apples together in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
  3. 3Honey Mustard Dressing
    In a small mixing bowl, combine Shallot, Apple Cider Vinegar, 3 tablespoons Olive Oil, Dijon Mustard, Honey, and Lemon. Add to Salad and coat to evenly distribute. Set aside.
    Heat a skillet (preferably a ribbed fry pan to create skillet lines) on medium high heat. Brush pan with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Place Tofu squares into pan and sear. Flip when browned. When both sides are browned, remove from heat. Place atop Salad. Serve.
