Broccoli Tofu Stir Fry

Broccoli Tofu Stir Fry

(I talked about this recipe here)

2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce (if you want this recipe to be totally vegetarian, don't leave this out. You can buy vegan "oyster" sauce at many grocery stores that's made from Shitake mushrooms)
2 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
18 ounces extra-firm tofu, drained and cut into small cubes
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups broccoli florets
3/4 cup water
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups cooked rice

Combine soy sauce, oyster sauce, cornstarch, rice vinegar, and sesame oil in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Set aside.
Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and sprinkle with salt. Cook until golden brown, about 8 minutes, tossing frequently. Remove tofu from pan and keep warm.
Add broccoli, water, and garlic to pan. Cover and cook 4 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
Uncover; add soy sauce mixture and tofu, stirring gently to coat. Cook 2 minutes, until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
Serve the broccoli-tofu mixture over rice.

Thanks for the recipe. I tried this last night and the boys liked it and I thought it was delicious. Our dinner guest took seconds.
