Recipe Ingredients for Cashew, Tofu, Broccoli Stir Fry

19 ounces extra firm tofu
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
3 cups broccoli florets
3 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup unsalted cashews
3 scallions, chopped
2 cups [i20041]

Recipe Directions for Cashew, Tofu, Broccoli Stir Fry

  1. Place the tofu on a paper towel set on a dinner plate. Top with a second paper towel and another dinner plate. Place a can or other similar weight on the upper plate and leave for 20 minutes to press excess water from the tofu.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Combine the soy sauce, honey, vinegar, and cornstarch in a small bowl.

  3. Add the broccoli to the boiling water, return to a boil, and cook for 1 minute, or until bright green. Drain and set aside.

  4. Transfer the tofu to a cutting board and cut into 1/2" to 3/4" cubes. Heat 2 teaspoons of the sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly golden. Transfer the tofu to a plate and set aside.

  5. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the skillet. Add the pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute. Add the ginger and garlic and cook for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Stir in the broccoli and tofu, and cook for 1 1/2 minutes, or until hot. Stir the soy sauce mixture to recombine and add to the skillet along with the cashews. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the scallions. Serve over the rice.
