Crispy Tofu Stir Fry

This is an easy go to when I have a ton of veggies, tofu and rice. I could also literally make it everyday because it is so delicious, quick, and filling.

Have you ever wondered how to get your tofu super crispy? Here are some steps to make a great stir fry dish with that awesome crispy tofu.

  • Use extra firm tofu for stir fry
  • Drain all water – this sounds like an easy task but not always!

Some people use books to compress the water out of tofu. Others use pots and pans. I recommend investing in a tofu press. They are easy to use and decrease the time it takes to cook the tofu.

I highly recommend this one:

Recipe Below ~
1 cup of brown rice
1 package of extra firm tofu
1 tablespoon miso
5 tablespoons oil
1/2 yellow bell pepper
1 cup broccoli
1/2 shredded lemongrass
1 teaspoon sugar
1/3 jalapeno

Cooking instructions:
1) Press as much water out of the tofu as possible. 
2) Mix miso, 2 tablespoons of oil, shredded lemongrass, sugar, and jalapeno in a bowl and set aside.
3) Cut tofu into cubes after the pressing is complete. 
4) Add 2 tablespoons of oil to a pan. Heat on high and then add tofu, broccoli and pepper. Make sure it cooks to a brown - on each side.
5)When #4 is cooked ad the sauce and sautee for 1 minute. Add the remaining oil as well
6) Enjoy over rice!
