Crunchy and cool stir fry

Crunchy and cool stir fry.
I have a basic stir fry sauce that I always use. The sauce includes:

Miso paste
Sesame seeds
Sesame oil
Garlic powder
Powdered ginger
Soy sauce
Chili paste

Today, I let tofu cubes hang out in some of the marinade for 30 minutes. 

Then I chopped up a carrot and some green beans. This went into a hot pan with a little coconut oil and they seared for a few minutes.

When the veggies are still a bit crunchy, I added in the marinated tofu and let it continue to cook for 5 more minutes.

I plated the stir fry and added some chopped cucumber on top.

It was a great combination of salty and slightly sweet but the cool crunch of the cucumber really put this dish over the top.

This is definitely a repeat dish!

Now I am off to spend some time in the sun!

  1. Adding that cold crunch to stir fry in the summertime was a great idea. Other than that, the salty sweet combo makes for a nice well rounded sauce. Thanks for sharing.
