15-Minute Tofu Stir-Fry

Ingredients

Ingredients for 2 servings

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 15oz extra firm tofu, chopped into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup chopped asparagus spears
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • Sauce
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon ginger paste
    • 2 tablespoons sriracha
    • 2 teaspoons arrowroot starch
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds for garnish
  • Garnish
    • Fresh lime
    • green onions
Steps
  1. Mix together the ingredients for the sauce and set aside. Taste the sauce before adding in the arrowroot.  If you prefer it to be less salty, add fresh lime or more rice vinegar to taste.
  2. Set a nonstick skillet on medium-high heat.  Add tofu cubes and sear for 5 to 7 minutes until the edges are brown.
  3. Toss in the veggies and shake the pan around so everything is coated in oil and the veggies begin to sear as well. Cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, until the veggies begin to soften, we want them crisp-tender.
  4. Reduce the heat and pour in the sauce.  The sauce should immediately thicken so shake the pan to coat the ingredients in the sauce.
  5. Remove the skillet from the heat and add sesame oil.  Shake the skillet to toss and then garnish.
  6. Enjoy this with jasmine rice or brown rice.  Since it is the fall season, I enjoyed mine with leftover winter squash. AMAZING!
