Dinner tonight: cashew tofu stir fry

Dinner tonight: cashew tofu stir fry 

I am a huge fan of any cookbook written by Mollie Katzen. She has written many and they all have the sense that you're cooking with her in the kitchen; the pages are all hand written, the directions are clear as a bell and she draws pictures and doodles to keep you entertained. The recipes are also delicious!



This cashew stir fry is inspired from a recipe found in The New Enchanted Broccoli Forest. You marinate the tofu in a flavorful sauce and then saute the veggies with the tofu and serve the whole delicious dish over some rice, topped with cashews. To save time, you could marinate the tofu the day before and even cook the rice too. 


1 pound firm tofu, cut into cubes
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
6 tablespoons water
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 tablespoons honey
1 tsp freshly minced ginger
4 medium cloves garlic
black pepper
2 teaspoons peanut oil
8 scallions, minced (whites and greens)
bell peppers, in strips
1 cup julienned carrots
1 pound mushrooms, quartered
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup toastes cashew pieces


1. Mix together marinade ingredients; lemon juice through black pepper. Add cubed tofu and let marinate for a few hours or overnight. You can also cook your brown rice the night before.
2. Preheat wok or heavy skillit over high heat. Add peanut oil and veggies. Saute veggies saute for a few minutes. Add tofu and all of themarinade and cook over medium until everything is hot and bubbly; total cooking time is not to exceed ten minutes
3. Serve stir fry over cooked rice and top with cashews
Chopping the veggies!
