1 14-ounce package extra-firm tofu2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar¾ tsp salt, divided1 cup frozen pearl onions, thawed2 medium carrots, halved lengthwise and sliced2 cloves garlic, minced1 bay leaf8 oz mushrooms, sliced2 Tbsp plus 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour2 cup light- to medium-bodied red wine, such as Beaujolais Nouveau, Merlot or Pinot Noir2 tsp butter


1. Drain, rinse and pat tofu dry; cut into 1/2- to 3/4-inch cubes. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu and cook in a single layer, stirring every 1 to 2 minutes, until golden brown, 7 to 9 minutes total. Transfer the tofu to a shallow dish big enough to fit it in one layer. Sprinkle with vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; gently toss to combine.

2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the pan over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, garlic and bay leaf; cook, stirring often, until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring, until they release their liquid, 3 to 5 minutes more. Sprinkle the vegetables with flour; stir to coat.

3. Add wine, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to the pan and cook, stirring, until the wine has reduced slightly and the sauce has thickened, 4 to 6 minutes more. Return the tofu to the pan, add butter and stir until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the bay leaf before serving.
