Ingredients

Stirfry

  • 1 lb extra firm tofu
  • 3 tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 2 Chinese eggplants (diced, Japanese or regular is fine too)
  • 1 head broccoli (chopped)
  • 1 8oz container of shiitake mushrooms (sliced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tbsp ginger (minced)
  • 1 can baby corn (rinsed and chopped)
  • 2 stalks green onions (diced)

Sauce

  • 4 tbsp tamari or soy sauce (2 for tofu and 2 for stirfry)
  • 1 tbsp mirin (regular rice vinegar works)
  • t tbsp Chinese black bean sauce
  • 1 tbsp Thai seasoning sauce
  • 2 tbsp miso (mixed with 2 tbsp water)
  • 2 tbsp Chinese fried chili in oil sauce
  • chili oil (to taste/garnish)
  • sesame oil (to taste/garnish)

Instructions

Tofu prep

  • Drain tofu in advance for at least 30 minutes. Chop into 1 inch cubes.
  • In a medium pan, heat up grapeseed oil, add tofu, sauté for 3-4 minutes on each side and add Tamari/soy sauce to char it. Set aside.

Stirfry Prep

  • Chop your veggies, add 2 tbsp of grapeseed oil to a wok on high heat and when it’s ready, add your eggplant and sauté for 4-5 minutes on each side. Take eggplant out of wok while keeping the stove on.
  • Using the same pan as you did for the eggplant add your broccoli and sauté on high for 3-4 minutes on each side, then add your mushrooms/corn and sauté for 2 minutes.
  • Now you can add your ginger and garlic for 2 minutes. Add your eggplant, tamari, mirin, vegetable stirfry sauce, Chinese black bean sauce, Thai seasoning sauce, and stir it all together for about 1-2 minutes.
  • Lower your heat to the max without completely turning off the stove. Then add your miso in the middle and stir in the water to break up the miso. If your sauce gets too thick, add more water or vegetable broth, to thicken, add more miso.
  • Turn off your stove, add your tofu. Then add your sesame oil, chili oil and Chinese chili crisp. Your meal is ready!

Notes

  • If your sauce is too thick, add veggie broth or water.
  • If your sauce is too thin, add a bit more miso and seasoning sauce.
  • Tired of tofu? Throw in some pan fried seitan or tempeh instead!
  • I love using Phoenix Bean Five Spice Tofu – it’s extra firm and already inherently flavorful!
  • Want more spice? Add some mini Thai chili peppers or chili oil!
  • Serve with rice, noodles or just have it by itself!
