Low Carb Stir Fry

I made this stir fry the other day and it came out truly delicious. For an even lower carb version, you can use regular tofu and substitute the cashews for peanuts.

  • 1 cup of broccoli florets (90 g)
  • 2 servings of Soy-free Tofu
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil (or more coconut oil)
  • 1/2 brown onion, chopped (50-60 g)
  • 1 dried red chilli
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped (120 g)
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
  • 1 oz cashew nuts (raw or roasted)
  • Optional: one star anise
  • Salt to taste (about 1/4 tsp)
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Optional: pinch of stevia (equivalent to 1/2 tsp sugar)
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Coriander to garnish
  • Process
    1. Cook the broccoli until just fork tender. I cooked it in the microwave with a little water and salt for about 6-7 minutes, stirring a little in between.
    2. Warm up two tablespoons of coconut oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, sautée the tofu until golden (about 5 minutes). Take out and reserve.
    3. Add the rest of the oil in the pan. Once hot, add the onions, red chili and star anise and a little salt. Cook for about 5 minutes until brown, stirring frequently.
    4. Add the ginger paste and cook, stirring, for one minute.
    5. Add the red bell pepper with a little salt, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 2-3 minutes until it gets a bit softer.
    6. Add the broccoli, stevia and soy sauce. Mix, cover and cook for about two minutes.
    7. Add the cooked tofu. Cook for 2-3 minutes everything together.
    8. Turn off the stove, add the lemon juice, check the salt and serve with coriander.
