Heather’s Sweet and Spicy Tofu Stir Fry 13

I had such an amazing weekend.  Most of it was spent in my camper….in the driveway. 
Remember how I told you that Chris is not a camping fan and, in fact, when I brought up the subject of buying one he wasn’t very happy (to say the least)? 
 Well we sat in the camper until 11:00 Friday night talking about the places we wanted to take it.  Possibly even taking it to camp one night on our way to Asheville this coming weekend!
Then Saturday he suggested we sleep in the camper just to see how comfortable it is.
And finally, Sunday he disappeared for a while and when I went out to look for him someone was pulling out of the driveway. 
The person pulling out was a friend of his that came by to check it out.
I am so happy to see that he seems to like it! I see many campouts in my future!
And I celebrated with tofu.
One of the reasons I love Heather’s blog called Where’s the Beach is because she’s so down to earth and always has great vegetarian recipes.
This past Friday I came across her Sweet Spicy Sesame tofu stir fry and it was one of those recipes that sounded so wonderful and I had almost everything I needed on hand!
Sweet and Spicy Tofu Stir Fry
Altered from Where’s the Beach
Serves 4
1 block extra firm tofu, pressed of water and cubed
1 Tbsp tahini paste
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
Red pepper flakes, to taste
3 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp powdered ginger
Soy sauce, to taste
1 12 oz bag pre-cut stir fry veggies (mine had broccoli, snow peas, carrots and red cabbage)
1 12 oz bag of pre cut broccoli
1 red onion, sliced thinly
Sesame seeds (optional for sprinkling at finish)
1. Whisk the tahini through pepper flakes in a small bowl.  Pour over the cubed tofu and marinate overnight if possible.
2. Preheat oven to 375F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.  Spread the marinated tofu cubes evenly over the top.  Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until outside is brown and crisp, turning several times during cooking time.
3. Meanwhile heat oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat.  Add the garlic and ginger powder.  Stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.  Turn heat to high and add the stir fry mix, broccoli, onion and soy sauce, to taste.  Sauté until crisp tender. 
(You may need to add a Tbsp or two of water if the veggies start to stick). 
4. Add baked tofu to vegetable mixtures and gently toss.  Top with sesame seeds.
