Description

Love fresh mango? This super easy mango tofu stir fry is the absolute best! Full of fresh vegetables and fruit, it’s healthy and delicious. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1lb extra-firm tofu
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 tsp avocado oil, divided
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 2 leeks, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2” ginger, minced
  • 2/3 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp honey*
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch 
  • 2 fresh mangoes, diced
  • 1 cup roasted cashews
  • optional: rice, for serving

Instructions

  1. Squeeze the excess moisture from the tofu block using multiple paper towels. Slice the tofu in half and then again into 6 even strips, then slice the strips into about 1″ chunks. Toss the tofu into a large resealable bag along with the cornstarch and salt and pepper, lightly shaking to completely coat the tofu chunks.
  2. Heat 2 tsp of the oil in a large work over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the tofu and fry for 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until crispy and brown. Once completely crisped up, remove the tofu chunks to a plate. 
  3. Add the remaining oil to the wok, then add the diced onion, pepper and leeks to the pan. Stir the vegetables around for 5-6 minutes or until they start to soften. While the vegetables are cooking, mix the sauce ingredients together.  In a small measuring cup, whisk together the garlic, ginger, vegetable broth, honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and cornstarch. 
  4. Add the sauce to the softened vegetables, and allow the mixture to come to a simmer. It will begin to thicken up the longer it simmers. Once everything is thick and coated, add in the crisped up tofu and stir to combine. 
  5. Remove the pan from heat, and add in the fresh mangoes and roasted cashews. Serve the stir fry immediately, over rice or another base.

Leftover stir fry can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days in the fridge.
