Spicy Tofu Over Rice
This recipe is a favorite with my boys. You can adjust the spice level to your liking, use whatever veggies you like, serve over rice, quinoa, noodles or just with veggies. It would be great in a Buddha bowl.
I use the high protein super firm tofu from Trader Joe's. All you have to do is cut open the package, drain the water, slice and cube. Super easy. To feed my 3 boys I used 1 package of tofu. You could use less if you were adding in a bunch of veggies.
Let's get started with cooking up the tofu. You will need:
1 package of super firm tofu sliced and cubed
cold pressed olive oil
1 tbsp of nutritional yeast.
Heat up the pan to pretty high heat and add a tbsp or so of olive oil to the pan. Add the tofu and cook until golden brown.
While the tofu is cooking you can make the sauce:
1/2 cup Braggs liquid aminos, coconut aminos, or low sodium tamari
1-3 tbsp chili paste (from Asian food isle)
Mix the sauce together. When tofu is done add the sauce and cook until the sauce is reduced. You can add broccoli, green onions, snap peas, cabbage. Whatever you would like. Serve over rice, noodles, or quinoa.
