Ingredients
  

Tofu

  • 16 oz tofu one block, about 16 oz, extra firm, frozen, thawed, pressed, and cut into cubes
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce or coconut aminoes
  • 2 tsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder

Broccoli

  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 8 mushrooms sliced
  • 1 small onion thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp olive oil

Sauce

  • cup soy sauce or coconut aminoes
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tbsp Swerve or sweetener of choice
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic minced fine
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp cornstarch whisked into 2 tsp water

Instructions
 

  • Preheat 2 tsp olive oil a wok or large skillet over medium high heat.
  • Put the tofu cubes in a large bowl. Drizzle with 2 tsp olive oil and the 1 tbsp soy sauce. Add the cornstarch and toss lightly to coat completely.
  • Brown the tofu cubes in the wok, allowing one side to brown before turning. Brown on all sides. Remove from wok and set aside.
  • Add the 2 tsp olive oil into the wok with the onions. Stir to saute onion until softened.
  • Add the broccoli and stir fry until crisp tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Toss in the mushroom slices and cook for an additional minute.

Sauce

  • While the broccoli cooks, whisk together the sauce ingredients, except for the cornstarch, in a saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil, then add the cornstarch and water mixture.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Continue whisking until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.
  • Toss the tofu, broccoli mixture, and the sauce together and stir lightly to coat.
  • Serve hot over rice or noodles. Garnish with sesame seeds, if desired.
