Ingredients

  • Tofu- 1 block firm or extra firm tofu. Have the tofu already pressed and cut into cubes.
  • Ground Ginger– 1 tablespoon.
  • Soy Sauce– 1 cup.

  • Cornstarch– 2 teaspoons. Water- 2 cups.

Instructions

  • Prepare the tofu by pressing it and cutting it into cubes as mentioned above. Place the tofu in a large shallow bowl.
  • In a two cup measuring cup or similar sized cup or bowl, use a fork or whisk to mix together the ground ginger, soy sauce, and rice wine vinegar. Pour about half of this over the tofu and save the remaining for use later. Allow this mixture to soak into the tofu for at least 10 minutes. Meanwhile, add the cornstarch to the water and allow it to dissolve while you work.
  • Preheat a large skillet or stir fry wok pan with the oil on medium high heat.
  • Stir in the garlic and cook for about 45 seconds then add the tofu and cook until it begins to brown. Please stir the ingredients in your pan as they are cooking hot and quickly.
  • Add the brocoli and the mushrooms and continue to cook until tender (2 ½ to three minutes). Then remove the pan from the heat.

In a saucepan on medium heat, mix together the remaining liquid from the two cup measuring cup and the honey. Bring this to a simmer and until thickened continutoulsy stirring.

Recipe Notes

As mentioned, this recipe is calling for broccoli and mushrooms. However, you can personalize your stir fry you can personalize this recipe by using vegetables such as carrots, peas, onions, bell peppers, water chestnuts, and/or garlic.
I also mentioned that you will need a firm or extra firm tofu for this recipe.
Pressing the tofu is an easy and essential task. To do this, simply cut (some people prefer to cut their tofu after it has pressed.) the tofu into cubes and place in between four to five layers of paper towels. Place something heavy on top of it and allow the tofu to press for at least thirty minutes. You can transfer out the paper towels for fresh ones as needed.
