Written by  McDonald, T.  |  Date 10th of April 2021 [you need to set the date]

This stir fry sauce is quick and easy and the vegetables are tender and tasty. Unlike other stir fries, this dish has particulate vegetables.   This is a light tasty dish with strong flavours and great textures. The beyond sausage meat has a great taste and releases its flavours into the pan to be soaked up by the vegetables.

Serves 2

Ingredients 

  • Tofu x 100g
  • Carrot x 50g
  • Cabbage x 50g
  • Broccoli x40g
  • Brussels Sprouts  x 40g
  • Red chilli x 1/2
  • Red onion x 1/2
  • Red and yellow bell peppers 50g each
  • Mushroom x 4
  • Garlic  x 5 gloves
  • Courgette spiralized  x 60g
  • Creamed coconut to fry the tofu x 1 tbsp
  • Beyond sausage meat x 1/2 link 
  • Sea salt to taste

For sauce

  • Soya sauce x 2 tbsps
  • Balsamic vinegar x 2 tsp
  • Water 140ml

Apparatus 

  • Frying pan with a lid (this is important)  
  • Spatula 

Method 

  1. Prepare the tofu.  I press the tofu al night and then coat it in spices such as paprika and cumin.
  2. Prepare all the veg and dice the onion.  
  3. Fry the tofu until it starts to get a crispy coating then remove from the pan and place to the side on a plate
  4. Add the Brussels and broccoli to the frying pan with some water.  You should get a lot of bubbling and steam.  Doing this will cook and soften the vegetables.  After 5 minutes, add the tofu back the the frying pan. 
  5. Add the onion and garlic and fry until the onion starts to caramelise.
  6. Add the rest of the veg and fry for a few minutes. 
  7. Make the sauce and add to the frying pan with the vegetables. 
  8. Add the spiralized courgette and continue to fry for a minute or two. 

It is important to keep stirring the whole time it is cooking to avoid burning the veg.
