Ingredients

  • 16 ounce package extra firm tofu drained
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil divided
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 small heads broccoli ~ 18 oz., chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into strips
  • 3 carrots peeled, cut into strips
  • 4 ounces cremini mushrooms chopped
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • To Serve: brown rice sriracha sauce

Instructions

  • Cut the tofu in half long ways, wrap in paper towels and press under a heavy object for 15 minutes. Cut into 1" cubes.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a non-stick skillet and add the tofu. Let tofu cook for 3 minutes on one side until golden brown. Gently turn onto the next side and repeat until most every side is golden brown. (I usually do 4 sides.)
  • To cook the vegetables, add the other 1 tablespoon of canola oil and sesame oil into a large, deep skillet. Add the broccoli, pepper, carrots, mushrooms and water. Toss and cook for 1 minute then cover and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and add the soy sauce, sriracha, garlic, ginger, black pepper, peas, and cashews. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until peas are thawed and any liquid is cooked off.
  • Toss in the tofu right before serving. Serve with brown rice and additional sriracha sauce.
