Ingredients

  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 2 cups Heinen’s vegetable broth or water
  • 2 Tbsp. Heinen’s avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 small shallot
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 14 oz. pack tofu
  • 2-3 cups veggies of choice such as snap peas, broccoli and carrots
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup Two Brothers sweet chili sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Cilantro, optional
  • Sesame seeds, optional

Instructions

  1. Layer paper towels on a paper plate and place the tofu on top. Cover the tofu with additional paper towels and place a heavy object, like a cast-iron skillet, on top to press the excess moisture out of the tofu. Let sit for 30 minutes or so.
  2. Prepare the rice according to the package instructions using either vegetable broth or water.
  3. Dice the shallot and mince the garlic, then add both to a skillet over medium heat with avocado oil or olive oil. Sauté for a few minutes.
  4. Cut the dried tofu into cubes, then add them to the skillet, browning on all sides, about 10 minutes.
  5. While keeping an eye on the tofu, chop the veggies. Once chopped to your desired shape and size, add the veggies to the skillet.
  6. Sauté, mixing gently, for 5-10 minutes. Once the veggies are slightly soft, add the Two Brothers sweet chili sauce.
  7. Allow the sauce to simmer, then add salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine.
  8. Serve the veggie and tofu mixture over the rice and top with fresh cilantro and sesame seeds.
