In addition to being easy and quick, this tofu stir-fry gives you all of the flavor of traditional takeout while remaining healthy and nutritious.

Makes 3 - 4 servings 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 package firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup veggie broth
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 cup white onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp. grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp. sesame seeds

Instructions

For the stir-fry sauce, combine your veggie broth, soy sauce, and honey in a small bowl and set aside. Next, cut your tofu into large, square chunks and season with just a bit of plain soy sauce. Then, sprinkle cornstarch over the chunks of tofu and toss with your hands so that each piece is properly coated. Spray a nonstick pan with cooking spray and throw in the tofu. Cook for about 4 minutes without touching. As the tofu cooks, chop and slice the broccoli, onion, and red bell pepper. Once the tofu is slightly crispy, flip it so that each side is cooked at the same consistency. Then, set the tofu aside and cook the veggies for about 5 minutes before adding the garlic and ginger. Finally, add the tofu back to the pan and pour in your sauce, stirring and cooking until it is slightly thickened. After plating your stir-fry, top with crunchy sesame seeds.
