  • 1 block tofu
  • Oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch

Stir fry

  • 2 cups Broccoli florets
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • I red bell pepper
  • Oil
  • ½ cup snow peas


  • ½ cup of soy sauce
  • Ginger and garlic paste
  • 2 ½ brown sugar
  • 2 medium green onions


  1. Mix the soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and garlic paste, cornstarch, and green onions in a small bowl and whisk thoroughly.
  2. Put the tofu on a cutting board or paper towel-lined plate to reduce the moisture. Then, press it down with a heavy skillet and leave for 15 minutes. Pat dry after 15 minutes.
  3. Cut the tofu block into cube sizes, and top it with some corn starch, pepper, and salt to taste. This adds the much-needed crispness to the exterior of the tofu, and it’s going to help it get nice and golden while you’re serving it. You can also add nutritional yeasts and spices to it if you want.
  4. Slice the carrots thinly, onions, and the green pepper
  6. Heat a skillet up on medium heat and add 250ml cooking oil to it.
  7. Once the oil is heated, add the tofu and cook for 3-4 minutes or until it becomes golden on all sides. You’re going to want to keep tossing it regularly to make sure it cooks evenly.
  8. Once the tofu has turned golden, remove it from the skillet and keep by the side.
  9. Then, pour a little more cooking oil into the same skillet. Add the broccoli, carrots, and red pepper to it and cook for 4 minutes. Add the snow peas and cabbage and cook for more couple of minutes and stir in the sauce. Cook for further 2 minutes and add the tofu. Simmer on low heat for some minutes and serve.
