The plan for tonight was to make a simple stir-fry along with Vegan Dad’s Pan Fried Tofu with Plum Glaze. With the ridiculous heat and humidity in our area today, we just wanted to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible. This here thing took about 15 minutes.
We didn’t have Hoisin Sauce, Woostashurr Sauce or Tobasco Sauce on hand, which Vegan Dad’s recipe calls for, so we just made up our own recipe.
Here’s what you do. Whip up the sauce first. Just combine all the ingredients listed below and whisk together with a fork. Then cut a block of tofu into triangles and fry it in a non-stick pan at medium head until it is browned. No oil necessary. Now pour the sauce on it and cook for a minute or two at low heat while it thickens up. That’s it.
You know how to make a stir-fry, so make that next. Maybe use some of the leftover tofu glaze in your stir-fry like we did.
