Tofu and Watercress with Lemon-Caper Sauce

What you need: 

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (16-ounce) package firm tofu, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons capers, chopped
1/4 cup, or less, dry white wine
2 to 3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 bunches watercress

What you do: 

1. Warm 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet and cook tofu in batches until golden brown on both sides, 2 to 4 minutes.
2. Add lemon juice and capers. Thin down the sauce with wine. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 2 to 5 minutes. (Use only the minimum wine, unless it is ultra-high quality, or else it will come out vinegary.)
3. In a separate skillet, warm the other 1 tablespoon of olive oil and add the garlic. Saute until starting to soften, about 30 seconds. Add the watercress and saute for a couple minutes. Serve the watercress onto plates, then top with tofu/sauce mixture. This dish is EXCELLENT when paired with simple potatoes roasted with rosemary.

This sounds wonderful, I love both capers and watercress although I have not tried the latter cooked or wilted.  Thank you for submitting this VeganPunk77, I look forward to trying it soon.
