Tofu & Broccoli Stir-Fry

May/June 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (227 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.

"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 Recipe

I loved this far more than I thought I would! I made it super green by using a mix of broccoli, green beans and zucchini. You could really use any veg you like to stir fry. I also substituted the sherry with orange juice and a dash of rice vinegar- tasted great with the fresh ginger. The sauce is really flavorful with red pepper flakes, and I'll def. make this again.

Easy to make substitutions
Easy and simple stir-fry

I wanted to break in my new wok and branch out a little. So I gave this a whirl, and it was delicious! I added some carrots for color. I also used leftover Chardonnay instead of rice wine. I served it over brown rice.

the sauce had a very good flavor

I am not a huge brocolli fan so I subbed sugar snap peas and sliced crimini mushrooms and it was delicious! I love the flavor of the sauce. I used precubed tofu and I won't do that again, they cut them too small and irregular sizes...small ones cooked faster than large ones and were a little tough. Otherwise, great recipe, and I will make again.

This is a keeper

Super quick, inexpensive and satisfying dinner. My husband would have turned up his nose if I had said we were having tofu but he was half way through his plate before he realized he wasn't eating chicken.
Served over brown rice this makes a perfect one dish meal.

Not too bad

I'm not usually a fan of tofu, but my husband is and we had some in the fridge, so I needed to come up with something. This was perfect. It reminded me of chinese chicken with broccoli. I added some sliced bell peppers because I didn't have quite enough broccoli - it was awesome. I think it would also be great with chicken! The sauce was really nice - I served it over rice and it was really tasty. Would definitely make this again as an alternative to take-out.
