Categories     Main Dish Recipes     Stir-Fry

Time 2h6m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 (16 ounce) package firm tofu, cut into 3 slices
1 cup low-sodium soy sauce, divided
1 (1 inch) piece ginger, finely grated
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 yellow onion, sliced
1 large green bell pepper, cut into chunks
2 small zucchini, chopped
6 small mushrooms, chopped
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Asian hot-chile sauce
2 tablespoons crushed roasted peanuts

Steps:

  • Lay tofu slices on a paper towel-lined plate and cover with more paper towels. Put a heavy object on top to press out excess water, about 15 minutes; drain and discard the accumulated liquid.
  • Mix 1/2 cup soy sauce and ginger in a large dish. Add tofu slices and let marinate, about 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Flip tofu slices and let marinate on second side, about 15 minutes more. Remove tofu from marinade and place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until dry, flipping once halfway through, about 40 minutes. Cut into smaller pieces.
  • Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and green bell pepper; cook until onion is slightly translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add zucchini and mushrooms; cook and stir until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in baked tofu.
  • Mix remaining 1/2 cup soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and chile sauce in a small bowl. Pour into the wok and stir until onion and tofu mixture is well-coated, about 1 minute. Garnish with roasted peanuts.

SPICY TOFU STIR FRY



Spicy Tofu Stir Fry image

The title says it all, I think. I like the peppery-ness of the napa cabbage with the sweet peppers. Feel free to add the veggies you like (sometimes I use eggplant). Just make sure you don't cook the veggies until they're mushy. You want them to still be firm, but not raw.

Time 30m

Yield 2 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 16

1 (8 ounce) package firm tofu (or extra firm)
2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce (more or less according to taste)
2 minced garlic cloves
1 tablespoon sesame oil
4 tablespoons soy sauce (I use low-sodium)
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 tablespoons rice wine
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1/4 cup low sodium vegetable broth
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 cup mushroom, sliced in half
1 large red pepper (orange or yellow are good, too(just chop it into roughly 1 by 2 inch pieces)
1/4 cup sliced green onion
2 cups shredded napa cabbage
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon cornstarch (mixed in 2 T cold water, cornstarch slurry)

Steps:

  • Cube tofu into approximately 1 by 2 inch pieces.
  • Set on top of paper towels and press (not too hard, you don't want to mash the tofu) on the top with more paper towels to rid the tofu of excess moisture.
  • Mix: chili garlic sauce, minced garlic, 1 T sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, rice wine, ginger, and chicken/veg stock.
  • Add tofu into chili sauce mixture. Make sure all pieces are in contact with the liquid. Let soak for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Put frying pan over med-high heat. Once pan has heated, add 1 T sesame oil.
  • Put marinated tofu in pan, brown all sides.
  • Remove tofu and set aside.
  • Add cornstarch slurry to remaining marinade, mix. (Add a few more tablespoons of soy sauce or rice wine or vinegar if necessary--you want this to be enough to eventually coat the vegetables as a light sauce).
  • Put mushrooms and peppers into frying pan. Stir constantly over high heat for 2 minutes.
  • Add green onion and napa cabbage. Stir constantly for 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour leftover marinade over vegetables, stir. Add browned tofu and chopped cilantro. When heated through, remove from heat.
  • Serve with rice.
