Prep: 15 minutes
Total: 25 minutes
Serves: 6

 

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons Ava Jane’s Kitchen Avocado Oil

1 ½ cup uncooked white or brown rice

14 ounces extra firm tofu

2 cups chopped broccolini or asparagus

2 cups sliced mushrooms

3 green onions, minced

 

Garlic Ginger Sauce Ingredients:

3 cloves garlic

2 tablespoons fresh ginger

2 tablespoons Ava Jane’s Kitchen Yucatan Honey

½  cup low sodium soy sauce

¼  cup water

¼  cup rice wine vinegar

¼  cup Ava Jane’s Kitchen Avocado Oil

 

Instructions:

Begin by blending the sauce ingredients until smooth.

Cook your rice according to the package instructions. Remove from heat and set aside.

Drain your tofu and pat dry with a paper towel to absorb the excess moisture. Cut into cubes (pat dry again if it still feels wet). Heat a large skillet with avocado oil and add the tofu cubes and ¼ cup of the stir-fry sauce. Add carefully – if the pan is too hot, the sauce may splatter a bit!

Pan-fry the tofu until golden brown, then set aside on paper towels or in a dish.

Now, add the rest of the avocado oil to your pan along with the veggies and saute with the rest of the sauce until tender. Add in the tofu and toss to combine.

Serve over rice and garnish with green onion.
