  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger or 1 tsp Hy-Vee ground ginger
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/8 tsp Hy-Vee crushed red pepper
  • 4 tsp Hy-Vee canola oil, divided
  • 6 c. assorted vegetables (such as thinly sliced carrots, broccoli florets, red onion wedges, red bell pepper strips and sugar snap peas) or 1 (16 oz) bag Hy-Vee frozen stir-fry vegetables
  • 2 tsp Hy-Vee cornstarch
  • 3/4 c. Hy-Vee 33%-less-sodium chicken broth

All you do

  1. Cut tofu into 3/4-inch cubes; place in a shallow baking dish. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, garlic, sesame oil and crushed red pepper. Pour over tofu. Cover and marinate for 10 minutes. Drain, reserving marinade.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 3 teaspoons canola oil over medium-high heat. Add tofu to skillet. Cook 3 minutes without stirring or until tofu begins to brown. Using a spatula, stir tofu and cook 3 minutes more. Remove tofu from skillet; keep warm.
  3. Add remaining 1 teaspoon canola oil and assorted vegetables to skillet; cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. In a small bowl, whisk cornstarch into chicken broth, then whisk in reserved marinade; add to skillet. Cook and stir about 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in tofu; heat through. Serve over quinoa.
