To marinate tofu :

  • 8 oz firm Tofu cubed
  • ½ teaspoon garlic paste
  • 1 tablespoon soya sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Siracha or hot chilli sauce of choice
  • 2 drops of sesame oil or regular oil
  • pinch of salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon oil for shallow frying

For Brown Rice stir fry:

  • 2 tablespoon oil using canola
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger minced
  • 8-9 small spring onions chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced/cut in julienne
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper adjust to taste
  • 2 tablespoon soya sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Siracha or hot chilli sauce of choice
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
  • cups cooked brown rice or white rice
  • marinated and shallow fried tofu recipe included
  • spring onions green for garnishing
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds optional and for garnishing



  • In a fry pan combine all the ingredients listed for marination (except tofu) and mix.
  • Add tofu and gently mix to coat uniformly.
  • Cover and keep aside to marinate for 15-20 minutes.
  • To shallow fry, add oil in a pan and once hot add the tofu and fry for approximately 1-2 minutes each side longer if you like them a bit charred. Remove on a plate and keep aside.
  • If there is any marinade left keep it as we will use it in stir fry.


  • In the same or different pan, add oil on medium high and once hot add the ginger garlic and spring onions. Saute on medium high for a minute or until the onions are soft.
  • Then add the broccoli florets, red pepper salt pepper and mix well. Saute for about a minute or two and then add the remaining tofu marinade. Cook on high for about 2-3 mins or until partially cooked (not completely).
  • Now add the remaining sauces like soya, siracha, vinegar and ketchup and mix well.
  • Cook for about a minute and then add the brown rice. Mix so that everything is well incorporated. Stir intermittently so that the rice warms up.
  • Finish off with some spring onions green, sesame seeds followed by marinated and shallow fried tofu. Mix everything gently to avoid breaking the tofu.
  • That’s it, our Brown Rice Stir-fry with Tofu, Broccoli and Red Bell Pepper is ready. Serve it hot! Enjoy!
