Tofu Mushroom Pepper Stir Fry

This is a fast nutritious main or side dish to have for either lunch or dinner. It is delicious and satisfying over hot white or brown rice or even any noodles you may have. The brown sauce is pretty close to what you may have with your Chinese takeout orders. 

Tofu provides your protein and the peppers and mushrooms your source of antioxidants to fight the cold and flu spreading around during these cold days.  

Tofu Mushroom Pepper Stir Fry

  • 1- 12 oz package firm tofu, cut into one inch cubes
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1- 8 oz package whole mushrooms, sliced 
  • 1/4 cup green onions, sliced
Combine the marinade ingredients in a shallow container with a lid.  Marinate the tofu in the marinade for at least 30 minutes.

Heat the coconut oil in a saute pan to medium heat.  Add the peppers and mushrooms and saute till the peppers are cooked yet still crispy.  Add the tofu and the marinade and heat through the mixture.  Add the green onions at the last minute of cooking.

Serve over rice or noodles.
