Tofu, Mushroom, Asparagus, & Onion Stir-fry

Posted on

Happy dinner time guys!

Today for dinner, I had a vegetable and tofu stir-fry with brown rice. I wanted something light because I was at my little cousin’s birthday party yesterday…and you guys know how that goes. Me + Cake = no control. =P The recipe turned out to be pretty yummy so I wanna share it with you guys!

– Tofu (I used Trader Joe’s Organic Sprouted Tofu
– 1 bundle of asparagus
– your choice of mushrooms (I used Crimini, about 6 pieces)
– 1/2 onion

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 large sweet onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp brown sugar

1 tsp Hoison sauce
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 clove garlic, mined
1 tsp powdered ginger
3 tbsp water

1. Slice the tofu into 1/2 slices (I cut mine in half to make triangles). Fry the tofu with NO oil. It should take about 3-4 minutes for each side. The second side will be quicker.
2. Chop up the vegetables. Cut the ends of the asparagus off and into bite-size pieces. Slice the mushrooms and onions.
3. Prepare your marinate. Put the vegetables & tofu into the marinade. Add water to cover the tofu & veggies.
4. Let it marinate for half an hour.
5. Prepare your sauce in a sauce pan. Boil the sauce and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
6. Strain the tofu and vegetables.
7. Put your wok/frying pan on high with a little bit of vegetable or sesame oil. Let it smoke and add the tofu and vegetables. Cook on high until asparagus are tender and crisp.
8. Add the sauce and stir.
9. Enjoy over rice =)

Enjoy! Let me know if you guys have any questions.


PS. Here are some pictures from my cousin’s 4th birthday party. I wanted to share them with everyone. It all started out with face-painting only the kids’ face…pretty soon, we were painting all the adult’s faces. Haha!
