Tofu au Vin for Two Recipe at
Drain, rinse and pat tofu dry; cut into 1/2- to 3/4-inch cubes. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a medium 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, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; gently toss to combine.

Heat the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in the pan over medium heat. Add onions, carrot, 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.

Add wine, the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 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.
