I’m always looking for new ways to jazz up that old block of tofu.
We’ve roasted it, we’ve served it cold, we’ve even turned it into a delicious burger. Can you believe we have yet to stir fry it?! I know, crazy town!
I think stir-frying has to be the most common method of cooking up some extra firm tofu. And it’s something we do fairly regularly in my household. And once I realized I have yet to share this method with you, I braved the hundred degree heat wave, broke out my wok, and cranked up my stove to cook up this lime and curry flavoured dish.
I love this dish because it isn’t your usual Asian flavoured stir fry – it has flavours of both Mexico and India and I love it wrapped up in a soft tortilla with a scoop of salsa and guac, served over a bed of quinoa or rice, or just eaten as is.
So blast your AC and get stir-fryin’!
Curry and Lime Marinated Tofu Stir Fry with Corn, Mushrooms, and Red Peppers
Adapted from Williams Sonoma
- 2 Tsp olive oil
- 1 lime (juiced)
- 4 Tsp soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp curry powder
- 1 1 inch piece of ginger (peeled and grated)
- 1 block of tofu (cut in cubes)
- 8oz cremini mushrooms (sliced)
- 1 clove of garlic (minced)
- 1 red pepper (sliced)
- 1 bunch of green onions (chopped)
- 1 small can of corn (drained and rinsed)
- 2-4 Tbsp cilantro (chopped)
This stir fry is great on it's own or served with rice or quinoa. I also like to serve it topped with some guacamole, salsa, and some tortilla chips for scooping.
||Combine olive oil, lime juice, curry powder, soy sauce, and ginger in a large bowl. Add tofu and let marinade while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. |
||Heat a non stick wok or large skillet over medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add mushrooms and cook until they start to brown and release some liquid. Add garlic and green onions and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add corn and red peppers and cook another 2-3 minutes, until the red pepper softens. |
||Add tofu with all the marinade and cook until the liquid evaporates and the tofu begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro. |
