During one of my visits home I had a particular craving for a dish that contained both tofu and pineapple and as I searched the web I came upon a recipe that fulfilled my every craving, Pineapple Tofu Stir-Fry. Since I have discovered this recipe I have used the basics of the sauce to make dozens of other variation of this original stir-fry. Below I have posted one of my favorite variations.

MANDARIN ORANGE, CASHEW STIR-FRY

INGREDIENTS:

Your favorite stir-fry vegetables (shown above carrots, snow peas and broccoli)

1 teaspoon canola oil

2 teaspoons fresh ginger

1 tablespoon garlic

1 small can mandarin oranges

1/4 cup cashews, or enough to please your love of cashews (I always put more 🙂 )

Crushed Red Pepper, to taste (optional)

Enough rice to satisfy 2, about 1 1/2 cups instant rice

SAUCE:

3 tablespoons mandarin orange juice, reserved

5 teaspoons rice vinegar

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon ketchup

2 teaspoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon cornstarch

  1. Prepare sauce by whisking all ingredient for sauce together.
  2. Saute ginger and garlic in oil over medium high heat until fragrant. Add your stir-fry vegetables, cook until desired tenderness. Lastly add mandarin oranges, cashews, sauce and crushed red pepper. Stir constantly, cook until sauce boils and thickens.
  3. Serve over cooked rice.

YUM! Please look at the original recipe it is also fantastically delicious!
