Pf Chang's Coconut Curry Vegetables

READY IN: 40mins
YIELD: 1 stir fry




  • Drain the tofu, cube and fry in 1 tbsp canola oil until brown. Set aside. (See this thread: I recommend freezing the tofu first to firm up the texture.
  • Separately blanch or steam the broccoli, carrots and sugar snap peas until tender-crisp in plain boiling water.
  • Heat a wok or wide skillet over high heat until hot. Add 1 tbsp canola oil, swirl to glaze the pan, then add the onions and bell pepper. Stir-fry until tender-crisp, 3-4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and stir until hot, a few minutes more. Add the blanched vegetables and and tofu. Toss to mix.
  • Combine the coconut-curry sauce ingredients. Taste and adjust the sugar to your liking.
  • Add the sauce to the pan with the veggies. Bring to a simmer, tossing to combine.
  • Dissolve the cornstarch in 1 1/2 tbsp of water and add to pan. Stir until the sauce turns glossy, about 10 seconds (a bit longer if you're doubling the sauce).
  • Add the peanuts.
  • Serve with rice, noodles, or a warm loaf of bread.
  • Use a milder or hotter curry powder to vary the spice.
  • For a really saucy dish to serve over rice or noodles, double the sauce ingredients and the cornstarch mixture.
