Simple Tofu and Veggie Stir-fry

  • 1/2 block firm tofu -- sliced 1/2" thick and pressed (see description above)
  • 1/2 c. soy sauce
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1 T. chili garlic sauce
  • 1/4 c. peanut oil
  • 8 oz. broccoli pieces
  • 1 red pepper -- sliced into strips
  • 8 oz. mushrooms -- quartered
  • 1 medium zucchini -- halved and sliced

Cut each tofu "slice" into 4 strips and further cut each of those strips into 4-5 triangles.

Combine the soy sauce, honey and chili garlic sauce in a shallow bowl and add the tofu. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 minutes.

Heat the peanut oil over high heat in a large skillet. Remove the tofu from the soy sauce mixture and add it to the hot oil, reserving the soy sauce mixture. Stir fry the tofu until a golden crust forms. Remove the tofu to a plate and add the prepared vegetables to the skillet. Stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 7 minutes. Return the tofu to the skillet and add the reserved sauce and stir fry for an additional 3 minutes. Serve the stir-fry over hot cooked rice.
