Kung Pao Tofu Brown Rice Salad

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 16 ounces firm tofu, pressed, cut into cubes

  • 3 to 4 cups cooked brown rice

  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot

  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced bok choy

  • 4 green onions, sliced (green and white parts)

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 2 tablespoons tamari sauce

  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce

  • Water for consistency

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Directions:

  1. Heat peanut and sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add tofu and cook, stirring often, until cubes are lightly browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine rice, carrot, bok choy, green onions and cilantro. If you want to serve salad warm, warm brown rice mixture in a skillet with tofu. Otherwise, serve at room temperature or chilled.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, peanut butter, tamari, chili sauce, and enough water to make a dressing.

  4. Pour dressing over rice and toss to coat. Add tofu and toss again. Season with salt and pepper.
