Stir-Fried Miso Tofu


Stir-Fried Miso Tofu

I recently discovered Miso, a fermented Soya Bean paste.  And although I’ve not been exactly successful using it with other recipes, this one was definitely a hit.

Stir-Fried Miso Tofu

I call it the Stir-Fried Miso Tofu. The instructions are fairly simple – Just sauté tofu in oil until it’s lightly brown and then add miso sauce + carrots, corn and green onion. Stir until the sauce thickens and you’re done.

Tofu’s meaty texture + Miso sauce’s taste makes this recipe really flavorful. You can serve it over rice, noodles, or just pick up a fork and start munching. 🙂
