Sticky Tofu and Broccoli Stir-Fry




Ingredients:

¼ Cup Hoisin sauce

1 tbsp. Soy sauce

1 tbsp. Asian Chili Sauce (either hot or sweet)

1 tbsp. Rice Vinegar or Cider Vinegar

1 tbsp. grated fresh ginger or 1 tsp ground ginger

1 package extra firm tofu, drained and chopped into 1 inch pieces

2 tsp cornstarch

3 tbsp. vegetable oil

½ lb fresh asparagus washed and chopped into 1 inch pieces

1 head broccoli cut into florets (about 4 cups)

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 yellow or red sweet pepper chopped

1 red onion thinly sliced

Directions:

In a bowl, stir together the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, chili sauce, vinegar and ginger. Set aside.

In a small bowl, using a fine mesh sieve, dust the chopped tofu with the cornstarch, turning to coat.

In a large non-stick skillet or wok, heat 2 tbsp of the oil over high heat; stir-fry the tofu, turning often until golden, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and toss with half of the hoisin mixture. Set aside.

Add the remaining 1 tbsp of oil to the pan and stir fry the asparagus and broccoli for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, yellow or red pepper and the red onion. Continue stir-frying for 2 minutes. Add the remaining hoisin mixture and stir-fry until the broccoli is tender crisp. Stir in the tofu and serve over rice.

If you like a saucier stir-fry, you can double the Hoisin sauce, soy sauce, chili sauce and vinegar. Enjoy!
