Eriks Teriyaki Tofu Stirfry

What you need: 

bamboo Shoots
carrots (baby carrots taste best)
green cabbage
vegetable/sesame oil
rice (white, brown, kashi, etc.)
vegan teriyaki sauce/merinade, or both..
sesame seeds/red pepper (optional)
sugar (unrefined preferred, but brown and white work)

What you do: 

Buy ingredients to personal preference, but I usually use about half of the head of cabbage, 1-2 cups worth of carrots cut into shoots, 14 oz package of tofu, cut into small squares. Personal preference on what kind and how much mushroom. Personal preference on amount of broccoli. I recommend usually alot of everything.
First get a big pot, wok, or pan and put in aproximately 2 to 4 Tablesppons of veg. or sesame oil. Add chopped tofu and cook on high to medium high for aproximately 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally until browned on all sides.
While tofu is frying, start cooking rice and chopping veggies. After mushrooms are cut, place in bowl and add 1-2 tablespoons of vegan sugar, sesame seeds and red pepper (all personal preferences on amount) and some sauce/merinade. Let sit while cutting other veggies.
Once tofu is deep golden brown on all sides, add sauce, cover tofu and lower the temp. to low or medium. Cover and let sit for aproximately five minutes (or longer) so tofu absorbs sauce. Then add veggies. Turn to medium high and cook for 5 to 10 minutes until veggies are cooked. Serve over rice.
Everyone loves this recipe. I recommend Kikkoman or Safeway brand Teriyaki sauce. The sauce is key for the flavor of the whole meal. If I have a merinade, I sometimes add some while frying the tofu. Enjoy!

My stirfry came out great!. I didnt have bamboo shoots. Although, I did add red bell peppers & eggplant. Its a nice little starter recipe for those who don't cook at all if any ... like me lol. I found that I may have put too much teriyaki sauce since there wasn't a measurement for it haha

Thanks!  ;)b


My version was really great, too!  I used TJ's super firm tofu, green bell peppers, and mushrooms (that's all I had) and a Kikkoman teriyaki marinade/sauce and served over rice.  I added a little orange juice and sherry to the marinade, instead of sugar, for some tangy sweetness.  Very yum.  =)  I also used a bit of cornstarch to crisp up the tofu.


I'm not going to rate this, since it's more of an idea..than a recipe, but my version was great! I stir-fried tofu, then zucchini and mushrooms, then some mustard greens with s and p, and added everything to some wild rice. Our good food store has great teriyaki sauce in bulk, so I added that with some green onions! I didn't even have to add any additional seasonings.  :)
