HIGH PROTEIN Vegetarian Dinner Asian Take-Out Style. Easy Vegan Recipes
???? Let me know in the comments if you enjoyed my Vegan Broccoli and Tofu Stir Fry Recipe?
▶️ RECIPE INGREDIENTS: (3 to 4 servings)
350g Extra Firm Tofu – cut into 1 inch X 1 inch cubes
1 Tablespoon Corn Starch
3 tablespoon Cooking Oil (I have used LIGHT olive oil which has a high smoking point)
1/4 Teaspoon Salt OR to taste
130g / 1 Cup Onion – Sliced 1/8 inch thick
300g / 5 Cups Broccoli – cut into florets
1+1/2 Tablespoon Garlic – 4 Garlic cloves finely chopped
1 Tablespoon Ginger – 1 inch Ginger finely chopped
1/2 Teaspoon Chili Flakes or to taste
1/3 Cup / 25g Green onion
2 Teaspoons Sesame Oil
???? SAUCE INGREDIENTS:
1 Cup Vegetable Broth (LOW SODIUM)
1+1/2 Tablespoon Soya Sauce or Tamari
2 Tablespoon DARK Soya Sauce (This is a key ingredient. It adds a depth of flavour and richness to this dish, so I DO NOT recommend substituting it)
1 Tablespoon White Vinegar (I have added white wine vinegar)
1+1/2 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1+1/2 Tablespoon Corn Starch
Cut the tofu into 1 inch X 1 inch cubes and add corn starch. Mix well to coat the tofu with corn starch.
To a small bowl add the LOW SODIUM vegetable broth, soya sauce, DARK soya sauce, white vinegar, maple syrup, ground black pepper and corn starch. Mix it well and set it aside for later.
✅???? PLEASE NOTE: I have used LOW SODIUM VEGETABLE BROTH for the sauce. If you are using the regular type adjust the salt accordingly.
To a heated pan add the oil, tofu (coated with corn starch) and salt. Fry on medium-high heat for only 30 seconds and then right a way reduce the heat to medium low and then add the finely chopped garlic, ginger and chili flakes. Mix well and fry for 2 to 3 minutes on medium-low heat. Add the onion and broccoli and turn the heat to medium-high or high (depending the heat of your stove) and fry for another 2 to 3 minutes until the onion is soft and the broccoli is slightly cooked.
Add the sauce. Make sure to stir the sauce well before adding it that’s because the corn starch has a tendency to collect at the bottom of the bowl.
Cook the sauce along with the vegetables on medium-high heat for about 4 to 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens to desired consistency. ✅Cook the sauce to your desired consistency.
Serve hot with steamed jasmine rice.
▶️ IMPORTANT NOTES:
???? Every stove is different so regulate the heat as required. If at any point you notice the pan is getting over heated, then reduce the heat.
???? FRY THE TOFU FOR ONLY 30 SECONDS AT FIRST NO LONGER THAN THAT and then fry it further along with the ginger, garlic and chili flakes for another 2 to 3 minutes. This will prevent the tofu from getting too chewy. We don’t want to over cook the tofu because we’ll fry it further with the onion and broccoli.
???? I have used LOW SODIUM VEGETABLE BROTH (for the sauce) which has barely any salt in it. If you are using the regular type adjust the salt accordingly
???? DARK Soya Sauce is a key ingredient here. It adds a depth of flavour and richness to this dish. I DO NOT recommend substituting it
???? Make sure to stir the sauce well before adding it to the pan to incorporate the corn starch because corn starch has a tendency to collect at the bottom of the bowl
???? Cook the sauce to your desired consistency
