sauteed tofu recipe

Sauteed tofu is a quick and easy dish that is ideal for everyday use. It's a healthy alternative to Chinese food that takes about 20 minutes to prepare.

Ingredients

  • 400 g de tofu firme ( 14 oz ), en dados
  • 1 cup of broccoli ( 100 g ), chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, julienned
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1/2 red onion, julienned
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • A 1 inch (2 cm) piece of ginger root, peeled and chopped
  • 3/4 cup of vegetable broth or water ( 190 ml)
  • 1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce ( 4 tablespoons)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, I used cane sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne powder (optional)

Instructions

    1. Tofu should be cooked in a pan with a little oil (optional) until golden brown. Reservation.
    2. Cook the vegetables in the same pan with a little oil until al dente (about 2-3 minutes), stirring occasionally. If you don't want to use oil, add a little vegetable broth or water instead.
    3. In a mixing bowl, combine all of the sauce ingredients until well combined.
    4. Stir in the cooked tofu and sauce, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.
    5. Before serving, taste and season with salt if necessary. Serve immediately (I sprinkled sesame seeds on top) or refrigerate leftovers for 5-7 days in an airtight container.

Notes

  • The recipe calls for two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. You can add more or less oil, or you can leave it out entirely.
  • Use your preferred vegetables, spices, and sweeteners.
  • You can substitute any other starch for cornstarch.
  • If you want to reduce the sodium content, use less tamari or soy sauce or water instead of vegetable broth.
