Tofu is a nutritious food item that I use at least once a week. Tofu has got lots of protein and calcium which helps the bones and teeth stay strong and healthy. It's also a healthy replacement for cottage cheese.
Kids love tofu at my home. In fact, my little ones almost always have a cute fight over the pieces of tofu.
Each one needs an equal number of pieces. And believe me, they have to be equal in size. Today, I wanted to give my kids a snacky, sweetish but a little tangy tofu recipe.
Therefore, I began making this recipe. I had not thought it through. I generally don't have any point of reference while I am cooking.
I just keep following my instincts and go with the smell of ingredients. I somehow get it when the salt is less or when the recipe is getting too sweet. I guess, that comes with experience.
But, don't be intimidated. I am not a hot-shot professional chef. I am learning every day.
👩🍳 So, Let's Make Honey Mustard Tofu Stir-Fry From Scratch
- When you get tofu from the market you should wash it nicely and then wrap it in parchment paper or paper towel. Then keep it on a plate and cover it with another plate. Now press the top plate with a heavy canned item. Leave it like that for about 30-45 minutes. This will release all the water from our tofu. Now cut them into 1/2 inch pieces.
- I start by grilling my tofu in a grill pan. I used regular vegetable oil. But many people use butter for this step as well. Once my tofus has that golden-brown grilling lines, I used a spatula to turn them over and grill the other side. When it was done on both sides, I kept it aside.
- In a bowl, I put some water with green beans in it. I placed them to microwave at full power for 2 minutes. Next, I took another bowl with Ice-cold water and transferred my green beans from the hot water into the cold. This process is called = "blanching and shocking green beans". This makes the green beans greener and gives them a nice crunch.
- In the same grill pan, I put some butter, chopped garlic and chopped ginger and stir it lightly. In just the next 30 seconds I added my Green Beans and tofus. I put the flame on low and cook it lightly for about 2-minutes.
- In another clean bowl, I make a mix of Dijon Mustard, Honey, Oil, and some salt. I glaze my green beans and tofus on the pan with this honey mustard mixture and just stir fry for about 1-minute at high heat.
- Season it with some more salt, black pepper powder, and some Lime Juice.
