Crispy Tofu Stir-Fry

A lot of people don't like tofu and I blame it on lack of seasoning as
well as the texture.  Tim has always enjoyed crispy crunchy foods, like
many people so we have developed this process for making the Tofu both
flavorful and crispy in a stir-fry.

1 lb Tofu
1 Onion
3 Garlic cloves
1 16oz. bag Frozen Broccoli
1 small can water chestnuts
Olive oil
Granulated Garlic
Black Pepper
Crushed Red Pepper

Preheat oven to 350 F - convection oven if possible.  Slice the Tofu
into approx 1/2" cubes.  Sprinkle Granulated garlic and grind black
pepper over tofu in a baking dish - bake in pre-heated oven for
approximately 30-40 minutes, turning every 15 minutes to ensure
crispness on all sides.

While tofu is cooking, chop onion, mince garlic.  Put crushed red pepper
in wok or frying pan with a small amount of olive oil.  Add the onions
and garlic to the pan.  Once onion is translucent, add broccoli and
water chestnuts.  Once broccoli is heated through, add the crispy tofu,
mix to combine, season with salt and pepper as desired and serve
immediately with brown rice.

  1. You are right about people not liking tofu because they don't know what to do with it. I am not a vegetarian, but I do like eating vegetarian dishes. Your Tofu Stir Fry not only sounds easy but yummy too.

    A toaster oven would be handy to bake the tofu in.
