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 : ) "

I couldn't get the tofu to brown!

I thought this recipe would have been a lot better if I could get the initial tofu-trying part down. Instead of "frying", the cornstarch on my tofu just turned into this gelatinous goo. I left the tofu in the pan for far longer than recommended and couldn't get it to crust at all

Great Recipe

This dish is SO GOOD! I have made it several times and love it more each time! Definitely one of our staples! I wish I could find more amazing recipes like this!

Perfect combo of sweet, savory and a little spice

This recipe has nice flavor, but I think next time I would cut the sugar down, and if there was some way to cut back on the cornstarch? I guess arrowroot? Otherwise it is a good recipe to work with. We enjoyed it with egg noodles!

Excellent use of broccoli!

An awesome stir-fry. Neither my husband or I are big fans of broccoli, but this recipe makes it delish.

SUBSTITUTIONS: I used pear juice instead of sherry, and rice noodles instead of egg noodles.


Haven't tried this yet but it sounds very good. Would like to point out that unless Chinese egg noodles aren't made with eggs, (I don't know), serving this stir fry on them would make this NON-VEGAN. I'm very surprised that your editor recommended using egg noodles for a vegan dish...
