I stumbled across this recipe at VeganYumYum and just had to make it. I love tofu and am up for making just about anything that involves it! An added plus – this meal was insanely easy to prepare!
Soy-Mirin Tofu Over Rice with Broccoli and Peanut Sauce
1 block extra firm tofu, pressed and cut into small squares
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons mirin
1 head of broccoli, steamed
1 carrot, peeled and shredded
Peanuts, crushed (optional)
1 cup dry brown rice
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup water (or coconut milk if you have it!)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon seasoned rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon hot chili oil
Pinch of salt
- Start cooking your rice. Mix sauce ingredients until smooth and set aside.
- Pan fry tofu in the oil over high heat in a non-stick skillet until browned on both sides. Drain and return to hot pan (turn off the heat). Mix soy sauce and mirin together and pour over tofu, mixing well. It will bubble up and form a light glaze.
- Plate rice, add broccoli, tofu, carrot, and crushed peanuts. Drizzle with sauce and serve.
Note: if you don’t have mirin, use a combination of cooking wine and sugar.
