Ingredients

for the sauce

for the sauteed tofu

  • 1 1/2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 4 dry red chilies broken
  • 16 ounces extra-firm tofu pressed & cubed
  • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms finely chopped
  • 8 ounces water chestnuts drained, rinsed, finely chopped
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 inch piece ginger chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 cup scallions chopped
  • add the sauce from above
  • 1/4 cup cashews roughly chopped

for garnish

Instructions

Prep

  • Prepare the sauce - mix soy sauce, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, and Ching's red chili sauce in a bowl. If you don't have Ching's Chili Sauce, substitute Siracha.
  • Press the tofu. Wrap tofu in a paper towel. Place a heavy castiron over it so the moisture is absorbed. This takes 30 minutes.
  • Chop the mushrooms, red bell pepper, and ginger.
  • Chop water chestnuts.
  • Chop scallions.

Cook

  • Heat a nonstick wok on medium heat. Once hot, add oil, followed by dry red chilies. Saute for 30 seconds.
  • Add tofu - crumble it so it's easier to cook.
  • Use a wooden spoon to break up the tofu. Cook for 6-7 minutes.
  • Now add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. The mushrooms will release some liquid.
  • This is what you should have.
  • Add chestnuts and red bell pepper. Also, add ginger and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes until warmed through. Don't overcook the veggies.
  • Add scallions. Stir.
  • Add all the sauce you prepared earlier. Stir.
  • Finish with unsalted cashews. Stir.
  • This is what you should have. Serve with lettuce wraps.
