In this video, I’m going to show you how to make Tofu stir fry with broccoli and beans. So, what you want to do with your Tofu is you’re going to cut it open here. You’re going to take it out, wash it off, slice it in half and take other half and put it into a container of water. Go ahead and cut your Tofu into cubes.
The next step is to add some oil to your pan. We’re going to be using virgin coconut oil. Coconut oil doesn’t have any trans-fat. It’s an excellent cooking oil. Your goal is to brown the Tofu. While your Tofu is browning, go ahead and cut up some broccoli. And of course you want to stir up your Tofu as it’s frying. See how some of it is getting brown like over here just keep on browning.
This Tofu is a firm Tofu. It has herbs added in. It’s very, very delicious. The beans we’re going to use are organic Chili beans and I use this particular brand and this particular organic Chili bean all the time. It’s very, very delicious. So, go ahead and open it. Just keep stirring it making sure you get as many sides brown as possible. We’re getting very close. Okay, now that most of it is brown and there’s just a little bit browning left to go on the Tofu, add your broccoli. And you can add just a little bit more oil to help the browning of the broccoli. You’re going to want to do this for about one minute maybe two. If you look here, it’s starting to just brown just a slight bit more. By the way, it’s the oil that makes it brown. If you didn’t have oil in here, it won’t be browning. The oil transfers heat from the gas to the food. Macrobiotically speaking, it’s also transferring energy and that energy is grounding energy. You’ll notice that the beans have a lot of liquid in them, that liquid actually has flavor in it. You’re just going to pour the whole thing in there and stir it in.
Now here is the next step. This is the important step. This is what makes your food taste good. This is the secret. You’re going to add Tamari sauce which is basically a soy sauce. Maybe three of teaspoons maybe four, add it to flavor, stir it in, turn your heat up so it simmers higher, seal that liquid in there that’s good because that liquid is necessary to combine all the flavors. Now, the other thing that you’re going to do is add a spice. In this case, we’re going to use cumin. Cumin is an earthy flavor. It’s very flavorful, it’s very good. This is simmering. Now, I’m going to turn it on low and now that it’s bubbling, very low heat.
Now, we’re going to do the salad. Okay, slice up your tomato. Okay. You can turn your heat off on your stir fry, add some greens, some tomato, some sprouted red lentils. Sprouted food has a lot of energy and nutrition in it, some sprouted mongo beans again, lots of energy, lots in nutrition, very flavorful, add your stir fry.
So finally, you’re going to add some Flax oil. Flax oil has a lot of Omega-3 fatty acids and it’s very, very flavorful. I never take it by the spoon, I just add it to my food. Barlean's is an excellent brand to buy, and finally, Annie’s Woodstock dressing. This is bond you cannot go wrong with using Annie’s Woodstock dressing. I guarantee it. Just add it to your salad.
Okay, you have a complete meal here. You have the salad portion which has the live enzymes and helps in the digestion and you have the cooked portion over here which is Tofu and beans and broccoli. This provides grounding energy, very young energy so that you can get through your day without any problem.
I highly recommend this meal. It’s easy to make. It’s healthy and you’ll love it.
