How to Make It
    For the Tofu
  1. Preheat a water bath to 180°F (82.2°C).
  2. Drain the tofu and cut into slabs ¾" to 1" thick (19 mm to 25 mm). Place the slabs on paper towels, top with more paper towels and a sheet pan lightly weighted down. Let sit for 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. Mix the harissa and soy sauce together. Remove the sheet pan from the tofu and brush the tofu with the harissa mixture. Place the tofu in a sous vide bag then lightly seal the bag and cook for 2 to 3 hours.
  4. For the Kale
  5. Heat the sesame oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the kale, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and vinegar then cover and let cook until the kale is tender, about 10 to 20 minutes.
  6. To Assemble
  7. Remove the cooked tofu from the sous vide bag and dry thoroughly using paper towels or a dish cloth. Sear the tofu with a torch or under a broiler until it starts to brown. Remove from the heat and cut into bite-sized chunks.
  8. Place the farro and lentils in a bowl and top with the kale and its juices. Add the tofu and the roasted red peppers. Sprinkle with the basil then serve.
