Ingredients:

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 block (14 oz) firm tofu, cubed

1 cup broccoli florets

1 cup sliced mushrooms

1 red bell pepper, sliced

1 carrot, julienned

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 teaspoon cornstarch

Sesame seeds for garnish


Instructions:

  1. Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.

  2. Add the cubed tofu and stir-fry for 5-7 minutes until it turns golden brown. Remove the tofu from the skillet and set aside.

  3. In the same skillet, add the broccoli, mushrooms, red bell pepper, carrot, garlic, soy sauce, maple syrup, and rice vinegar. Stir-fry for 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
