Hoisin Glazed Tofu Stir Fry
- 1 cup jasmine rice
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets
- 1 teaspoon canola oil
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 2 cups cremini mushrooms sliced
- 2 carrots sliced
- 1 teaspoon canola oil
- 1 block firm tofu
- 1 teaspoon hoisin sauce and more to drizzle on top (e.g. Flying Goose Brand)
- Cook the rice on medium heat until all the water is absorbed.
- In a large pan or wok on medium to high heat, add the broccoli florets and a splash of water. Close the lid and let the broccoli cook for a few minutes until softened. Then add the canola oil, soy sauce, cremini mushrooms, and carrots. Stir to combine and let it cook without the lid for a few minutes until the mushrooms are cooked through. Set aside.
- In a second pan on high heat, add the canola oil for the tofu. Cut the tofu in triangles and add them to the pan. Add about 1 teaspoon of hoisin sauce and stir to get the tofu coated.
- Let the tofu pan-fry for about 4 minutes on each side or until it gets golden and crispy.
- Divide the rice into bowls, add the veggies and crispy hoisin-glazed tofu and drizzle with more hoisin sauce. Enjoy!
