Oriental Style, Stir-fried Tofu And Hoisin DishCOURTNEYELLA
Oh my goodness! - Now I need to begin by saying that this is one of my favourite meals that I have ever made. It's utterly delicious, quick and easy to make, and nutritious too. If you want to eat healthily, but deep down you're craving some Chinese…
food or a Wagamama meal, DEFINITELY make this instead. It tastes just as good but without the fatty-overload and guilt that you get after a Chinese takeaway. Also, the hoisin-style sauce that I made to go with this is super simple, but really tasty.
- To prepare the hoisin sauce - Mix 2 tablespoons of soy sauce with 1 large tablespoon of smooth peanut butter. Add 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of honey. Add 1/2 teaspoon of finely chopped/crushed garlic. Add 1 teaspoon of sesame seed oil (or other oil e.g groundnut oil if you don't have sesame). Mix together with a whisk until you get a smooth and even texture. Put to one side ready for later.
- Start by washing the broccoli, beans and mushrooms. Cut off the tips of the green beans and cut the beans into 1/3 or 1/2 depending on length of bean. Cut off the mushroom stalks and cut the mushrooms into quarters because you want your slices to be quite chunky. Cut the broccoli into slightly smaller sections as these won't cook as easily as mushroom.
- Cut the tofu into small cubes, as you would a block of feta cheese and pat dry with kitchen roll several times - this step is very important. Add a glug of olive oil and a teaspoon of soy sauce to a frying pan and place on the hob on a medium heat. Then add the cubes of tofu to the pan and cook for about 10 minutes, occasionally rotating the cubes over until golden brown on the outside. Once the cubes of tofu are cooked place them on a plate aside to stop them from burning or crumbling.
