Cilantro Ginger Tofu Toss

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Dre S

Small adaptation to a yummy vegan recipe from How it All Vegan, 10th Anniv Ed. Very healthy and a good meatless protein source if you use high protein tofu like I do. Any extra firm tofu works though. You need a large, wide pan for this.

This was good. I didn't give it 5 stars because the ginger flavor was a bit stronger than I would have chosen. I will probably make it again with a little less ginger. I didn't have the extra firm tofu on hand, so I added some fried "onion tofu" that I had in the refrigerator. I worked well in the dish.

I served it over brown rice. The chewy rice went well with the veggies.
