- 1 block of firm tofu, drained and cut into cubes
- 1 package of tempeh, cut into cubes
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
- 1 onion, sliced
- 2 cups of broccoli florets
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of corn starch
- 1 teaspoon of ginger powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, corn starch, ginger powder, red pepper flakes (if using), salt, and pepper. Set aside.
Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the tofu and tempeh cubes. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown, flipping occasionally. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
In the same skillet, add a little more oil if needed. Add the sliced onion and garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until softened.
Add the sliced bell peppers, broccoli florets, and a pinch of salt. Cook for another 3-5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender but still crisp.
Add the cooked tofu and tempeh back into the skillet, and pour the sauce over the top. Stir to coat everything evenly.
Cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened and the vegetables are coated in the sauce.
Serve the stir fry over rice or noodles, if desired. Garnish with green onions or sesame seeds.
