This was one of those last minute, throw whatever’s in the fridge onto the stove kind of dishes.  And, thankfully, it turned out pretty darn tasty!  It was filling, with just the right amount of spice, and brimming with nutrients, fiber and nourishing plant-powered goodness.  It took me about 30 minutes from start to finish, so it’s a great dish to make when you’re short on time and you still want a home cooked meal.

STIR FRY METHOD

  • In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, sauté onion and bell pepper for about 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and caramelized.
  • Add minced garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Reduce heat to low-medium and stir in cauliflower rice.  Cook for 3-4 minutes.  Add veggie broth to prevent sticking.
  • Incorporate peas and green onions, and cook for another 2-4 minutes or until mixture is heated through.
  • Add half of the ginger sauce, stir and transfer into serving dishes.
  • Top with prepared tofu and enjoy!

TOFU METHOD

  • Slice tofu into thin, even squares.  Then cut squares on a diagonal to make triangles.
  • Whisk together minced ginger, vinegar, tamari, Sriracha, maple syrup, lime juice and crushed red pepper flakes.
  • In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, place tofu triangles in an even layer across the skillet.
  • Brown tofu for about 4-5 minutes on each side.  Tofu may stick at first, but once it’s browned, it will be easy to flip.
  • Once all tofu triangles are browned, reduce heat to low-medium, toss tofu with only half of the ginger sauce mixture (reserve the rest for the cauliflower rice), until each piece is evenly coated.
  • Keep warm on low heat until ready to serve.
