Not Just Tofu

Recipe: Cooking Class Recipe II

In Editorial, Recipe on January 24, 2011 at 5:45 am

The 2nd recipe I shared with the cooking class was the Broccoli and Soy Stir Fry.  This recipe has is a people pleaser, I think it’s because of the sauce.  Once you smell the sauce, you will want to bathe in it.  The combination of ginger and citrus just makes people happy. The soy in this recipe depends on what you like.  Sometimes I use fried tofu or seitan but this time I used the mock turkey roll (Mock turkey roll is made by Worthington). 


  • Broccoli and Soy Stir Fry

    1 ½ pounds of broccoli florets

  • 1 package of tofu or meat substitute pieces
  • 2 tbsp of canola oil
  • 3 tbsp of light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp of sesame oil
  • ¾ cup of water
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced (2 tsp)
  • 1 tbsp of ginger
  • 1 tbsp of cornstarch
  • 1 orange (juice and zest)
  • 2 stalks of scallion, thinly sliced
  • Pepper flakes (optional)



  1. Heat oil in large frying pan
  2. Fry tofu or soy substitute pieces until brown on both sides and remove from pan
  3. Meanwhile Cook broccoli (stalks and florets) in a large pot of boiling salted water until bright green, 2 minutes. Drain; set aside
  4. To make sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, red-pepper flakes, orange juice, cornstarch, and 3/4 cup water; set aside
  5. Add garlic, ginger and orange zest to frying pan, stirring quickly
  6. Add broccoli to skillet; cook over high heat, stirring often, until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes
  7. Add tofu or soy substitute to broccoli
  8. Whisk reserved sauce to combine; pour into pan
  9. Finish with sliced scallions and sesame oil, remove from heat
