In this week’s recipe: Tofu Stir-Fry with Basil Peanut Sauce, we used Trader Joe’s “super firm” or “high protein” tofu. I love this form of tofu because by removal of the water, you get a dense product that can go from “package to pan.” To get the same consistency with water-packed tofu, it requires an almost entire roll of paper towels to press out the water. #wasteful No draining here! Just open, cube and cook.
High PROTEIN Tofu
With less water, you’ll pack in more protein per 3 oz serving. High-protein tofu has ~15 grams/3 oz. compared to 8-9 grams of protein in water packed tofu. Not bad for only 140 calories of plant-powered, planet friendly protein.
Soak Up Flavors with Our Basil Peanut Sauce
Since tofu soaks up whatever flavors you add, how about flavoring it with healthy ingredients? Instead of that high-sodium, high-sugar teriyaki packet that often comes with frozen stir-fries, make your own! Our peanut basil sauce packs in nutritious flavors from 1 cup of fresh basil, ginger and healthy fats like peanut butter. We hope you enjoy this tofu dish on the stir-fry fly as much as we do!
