Total time
A sweet and spicy stir fry with crispy baked tofu and aromatic Thai basil.
Serves: 2-3
  • Crispy tofu (recipe above)
  • 1 cup uncooked grain of choice (I use white or brown rice for this)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 Thai chilis (depending on your heat tolerance), seeds removed and minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 can baby corn, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 4 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Large bunch of baby bok choy, roughly chopped
  • About 2 cups Thai basil, stems removed
  1. Cook the crispy tofu based on the directions in the post above. Cook your grain of choice according to package directions.
  2. When your tofu and grains have about 5 minutes left in their cooking time, start the stir fry. Add the peanut oil to a large pan and turn the heat onto medium. Add the minced garlic for about a minute, followed by the Thai chile.
  3. After about another minute, add the red bell pepper, baby corn, tamari, sesame oil, and brown sugar. Stir well to dissolve the brown sugar. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the red pepper slices have softened.
  4. Add the baby bok choy, Thai basil, and crispy tofu. Cook for about 2 more minutes, until the bok choy and basil are beginning to wilt.
  5. Serve immediately with your grain of choice.
