We’re big meat eaters in our household, yet we hardly miss the meat. The delectable combination of soft tofu cubes, tender-crisp asparagus, and meaty shiitake mushrooms in a savory stir-fry sauce over steamed rice is so tasty and filling.

I used my tried and tested and ever trusted stir-fry sauce for this recipe, which has made a few delicious appearances on the blog as this beef and baby corn stir-fry and snow peas with shrimp stir-fry.

I used a vegetarian mushroom oyster sauce to make this tofu stir-fry a vegan dish. You can find this vegetarian version alongside the real stuff at most Asian grocery stores, or you can order from Amazon for convenient delivery.

Cooking Tips

  • The recipe calls for firm tofu, but you substitute soft tofu if you prefer the texture, and remember to stir gently to keep it from falling apart.
  • This is a quick stir-fry so have all the ingredients prepped and ready to go. Cut them into uniform sizes for even cooking.
  • For extra crunch, stir in 1/2 cup of roasted cashews during the last minute or two of cook time.
