Tofu & Broccoli Stir-Fry

May/June 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (232 votes)

We like broccoli best in this tofu stir-fry, but any mixture of vegetables you have on hand will work. One way to get great tofu texture without deep-frying is to toss the tofu in cornstarch before stir-frying. Let it cook for several minutes without stirring to help it develop a little crust. Serve with: Chinese egg noodles or rice noodles and a glass of Riesling.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Wow--great sauce. I added shitake mushrooms, served over brown rice, and with scallions. Pretty much like the other person said--hey! great minds think alike : ) "

Great Dish for the family

My family loved this and anticipating this, I actually doubled the broth/soy sauce/cornstarch sauce when I made it so the kids could have extra sauce on their rice. Sauce flavors the tofu nicely; I was low on broccoli so I also added fresh carrots, celery, a red bell pepper and a bit of red onion. It's a basic recipe so if you want to throw in a variety of veggies or some nuts, or switch up some of the spices, (I didn't use ginger) it all still works. Yum, definitely making this again.

I wanted to add that browning

I wanted to add that browning the tofu so it got a golden crust on it took much longer for me than a few minutes on each side. More like 10-12 minutes on each side.

This was ok. Not alot of flavor. It was nice you could taste the ginger, but it seemed bland to us. Probably won't make again.

Great Sauce!

I loved this recipe! I've been looking for something with a good sauce, instead of having to use a salty powder to season our stir fry.

We served it over brown rice. I added mushrooms to the broccoli. Also, though others commented their husbands would eat the tofu, mine would know right away it wasn't meat, as I've tried to sneak it in before! I made this with boneless skinless chicken breast instead, took a bit longer than tofu would, but I cooked it the same way.

Love this recipe! WILL make again!
