Preparation Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 2-4


  • 14 oz Extra Firm Tofu
  • 1 Cup Rice (Brown or White)
  • 2 Medium Heads of Broccoli
  • 2 Cups Sliced Mushrooms
  • 2 Large Carrots
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion
  • 1 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Avocado or Olive Oil
  • Optional: 2 Green Onions for garnish

For the Sauce:

  • 2 1/2 Cups Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce (gluten-free or aminos)
  • 3 Tablespoons Coconut Sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 3 Teaspoons Fresh Ginger, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Rice Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Chili Sauce or Sriracha


  1. Prepare the Rice: Cook rice according to package instructions and set aside.
  2. Fry the Tofu: In a large skillet, heat 1 cup of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 375°F (about 4-5 minutes). Drain and cut the tofu into 1-inch cubes. Fry the tofu cubes, turning occasionally, until golden and crispy. Drain on paper towels and set aside.
  3. Cook the Vegetables: In another large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of avocado or olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onions and carrots, cooking until onions begin to soften. Add chopped broccoli and a third cup of water to steam. Cover and cook for a few minutes.
  4. Add Mushrooms: Incorporate sliced mushrooms into the skillet with the other vegetables. Cover with the lid and reduce heat to simmer.
  5. Make the Sauce: In a medium bowl, dissolve cornstarch in 1/2 cup of water. Add the remaining water, soy sauce, coconut sugar, rice vinegar, minced garlic, ginger, and chili sauce or sriracha; mix well.
  6. Combine and Simmer: Add the crispy tofu and prepared sauce to the skillet with vegetables. Stir continuously and simmer for 3-5 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  7. Serve: Plate the stir-fry over cooked rice. Garnish with sliced green onions.

Enjoy this delicious tofu stir-fry, a perfect blend of spicy, sweet, and savory flavors, ideal for a nutritious family dinner or a cozy meal for two.
