  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 1/4 onion, sliced
  • 1-2 garlic, minced

How to Make Asian Tofu Harvest Bowl

  1. Drain the tofu and gently press it in a kitchen towel or paper towel over the sink.
  2. Cut the tofu into cubes and sauté or fry on a pan until golden brown on each side. Set tofu aside.
  3. In a large pot of boiling water, blanch each type of vegetable separately for about 3 minutes, or until desired tenderness.
  4. In a large pan, heat oil until hot. Add onion and garlic, stirring until onion is translucent. About 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add the fried tofu and all vegetables. Sprinkle salt or vegetarian seasoning, and black pepper. Toss about 5 minutes to evenly coat tofu and vegetables.
