Tofu Stir Fry

Tofu Stir Fry Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 15 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 25 mins


16oz (~450g) Extra Firm Tofu

1 Tbsp Olive Oil

1 tsp Ginger Powder

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Onion Flakes

1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper

1 Tbsp Soy Sauce*

2 Tbsp Hoisin Sauce*

1 Tbsp Maple Syrup

3.5oz (100g) Baby Corn (about 8–10 pieces, chopped)

1 Carrot (Chopped)

1 Spring Onion (Chopped)

1 Green Bell Pepper (Chopped)

Fresh Lime

Fresh Basil

Sliced Cucumber


1Press the tofu for 15 minutes ideally using a tofu press, or by placing the tofu onto a plate, with another plate on top of it and then stacking something heavy on top, like a heavy pot. The object is to press as much water out of the tofu as possible, leaving it as firm as possible.

2While the tofu is pressing, prepare your vegetables by chopping the baby corn, the carrot, spring onion and green bell pepper.

3Slice the pressed tofu into cubes and then add to a frying pan with the olive oil and fry, gently turning over the tofu until it’s nicely browned.

4Add in all the chopped vegetables and fry for a minute, then add in all the spices, soy sauce, hoisin sauce and maple syrup. Keep frying and gently moving the vegetables and tofu around in the pan until the vegetables are slightly softened (but still a little crispy) and the veggies and tofu are nice and sticky from the sauce.

5Serve with basmati rice or cauliflower rice, fresh basil, sliced cucumber and fresh lime.
