Classic Stir-fry Tofu and Vegetables Hoisin over Brown Rice
Mmmmmm….stir-fry. Tender-crisp veggies, flavorful sauce, brown rice. What a great meal. Last night for dinner I made CLASSIC STIR-FRIED TOFU AND VEGETABLES HOISIN over BROWN RICE.
You start this dinner by simmer brown rice in water for about 45 minutes. While this cooks, you cut tofu into small pieces, de-stem broccoli florets, and dice a red bell pepper. The tofu is cooked in a small amount of oil until golden brown. The broccoli and red pepper are added to the pan, and cooked until tender. Minced garlic and ginger are stirred in, and cooked for a few seconds. A sauce made from soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and sesame oil is poured over the vegetables, and then the tofu is returned to the pan. After cooking for a minute longer, the stir-fry is ready to be enjoyed over the brown rice.
YUM! This is flavorful, nutritious, and filling. The flavors were very nice-not too strong or heavy. It was easy to prepare, and the clean-up was easy as well. I will make this again!!
