- 2 cups spelt berries
- 4 cups water
- 1/2 cup tamari
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 2 tablespoons brown rice vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 cup toasted sesame oil
- 1/2 cup olive oil

- 1/2 red bell pepper
- 3 to 4 green onions, finely sliced
- 1/4 cup coarsely chopped Italian parsley
- 1/2 cup finely shredded red cabbage

Bring spelt berries and water to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until spelt berries are tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Drain and rinse.
Mix together tamari, ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, cayenne, sesame oil and olive oil until sauce is blended.
Preheat oven to 325° F. Cut tofu into 1-inch cubes. Pour sauce over tofu and bake for 15 minutes. Stir and cook for another 15 minutes, or until browned and cooked. Cool sauce and tofu, then pour over spelt.
Julienne red pepper by slicing it into thin matchsticks, each about 2 inches long. Toss remaining ingredients with the spelt-tofu mixture.
