Tofu Stir-Fry with Almond Butter Citrus Sauce

Stir-fries are a great go-to meal for busy weeknights. I particularly love adding crispy tofu to my stir-fries since it adds great texture and protein. For this stir-fry, I also decided to add broccoli and cauliflower for color and added nutritional value.  And the delicious almond butter sauce, which is a flavor combination of salty, sweet and tart (thanks to the citrus zest and juice) makes this dish irresistible.

If you would like to use a different protein besides tofu, I recommend cubed chicken breast or thinly sliced beef tenderloin.



1. Whisk sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.



2. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly coat tofu with cornstarch in a mixing bowl. Add tofu to the hot oil and fry, stirring often, until lightly crisp. Transfer to a bowl.




3. Add broccoli and cauliflower to the skillet and cook until lightly tender, about 5 minutes. Add sauce and cook for 2 minutes longer. Add tofu and stir gently to combine.




4. Scoop quinoa into serving bowls and top with stir-fry. Garnish with chopped almonds and serve.

  3. Cashew nuts are packed with antioxidants and stimulate the immune system. Want to buy jecashew nuts online? Order cashew nuts at Allnuts of course! Everyone knows these wonderfully healthy nuts. They stand out because of their specific kidney shape and have long been used as "cocktail nuts". When we buy cashew nuts, these are usually peeled. In the natural form, the nuts are covered by a woody peel. This has a brown-gray color and feels smooth. Cashew nuts grow on the cashmere tree, which some people also call acajuu tree or elephant lock tree. This tree originally only grew in the Caribbean, Central America and in the North of Brazil. This distribution area was later extended to India, Brazil, Nigeria, Mozambique, Indonesia and Tanzania.

  9. Another great thing about cooking with a gas grill is the cleanup. It is very easy to clean a gas grill because there are no ashes or mess from charcoal dust or wood. Mrs Veggie Chopper
