Pearl Barley - Sweet & Sour Tofu Stir Fry
Pearl Barley - Sweet & Sour Tofu Stir FryRecipe for 2 persons
𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗦𝗪𝗘𝗘𝗧 & 𝗦𝗢𝗨𝗥 𝗦𝗔𝗨𝗖𝗘:
1 tsp tamari
5 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp maple syrup (more or less, based on desired sweetness)
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
black pepper, freshly cracked
a few drops toasted sesame oil
In a small bowl, whisk all sauce ingredients until combined.
𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗦𝗧𝗜𝗥 𝗙𝗥𝗬:
Canola oil, for frying
170g extra firm tofu, pressed and cut into squares
100g broccoli florets
100g onion, sliced
100g red pepper, sliced
2 tbsp tamari (divided in half tbsp)
4 cloves garlic, minced
spring onion, thinly sliced
red chili flakes
90g pearl barley
In a frying pan over medium high heat, cook tofu in canola oil with 1 clove garlic (minced). Cook until golden on both sides. Toss in 1/2 tbsp tamari. Set tofu aside.
In the same frying pan, sauté remaining garlic until fragrant. Add veggies and cook until tender but crisp.
Add tofu back into the pan with veggies and pour in sauce. Toss and cook until sauce is thick and sticky.
If you find yourself in a situation with a sauce that’s a little too sticky, add a little water or veggie stock (1 tbsp at a time) and stir.
Serve with grain of choice (barley is a great combo but brown rice, quinoa, whatever you like will do)! Garnish with spring onion, sesame seeds & red chili flakes.
