Honey Soy Tofu & Vegetables

Method

Boil or steam Jasmine rice until it is cooked, light and fluffy. Pre-heat oven to 180°C.

Coat the tofu strips with soy sauce & oil, then lightly toss in corn flour until each piece is well coated. Evenly distribute seasoned tofu pieces on a non-stick baking tray and roast for approximately 7 minutes or until golden and slightly crispy on the outside.

Heat half the sunflower oil in a large deep non-stick frying pan (or Wok), over a high heat. Stir fry the broccolini, capsicum, cauliflower & edamame for 4 – 5 minutes. Remove vegetables from the pan and reserve.

For the sauce; heat the remaining sunflower oil in the previously used frying pan, over a medium heat. Fry off garlic for 1 minute, ensuring it does not burn. Add water, salt reduced or light soy sauce, sweet soy sauce & honey and bring back to a simmer; allowing it to reduce and thicken.

Add back the roasted tofu & reserved vegetables to the sauce and stir through until the sauce completely coats all ingredients. Evenly portion the tofu & vegetable stir fry on top of the cooked jasmine rice and enjoy.
