Kale, Broccoli & Tofu Stir-Fry With Ginger Miso Dressing

Kale Broccolit Tofu Stir FryKale, Broccoli & Tofu Stir-Fry With Ginger Miso Dressing

This is a great recipe for a quick lunchtime stir-fry.  It uses broccoli and kale (or dark-leafed cabbage greens or spinach).

You can cook up a batch and re-heat for the next day. Quick, easy and tasty.


1 tbsp Clearspring toasted sesame oil

2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

1 onion, finely sliced half-moons

10 fresh shitake mushrooms, finely sliced or Clearspring dried shitake mushrooms

½ block of tofu cut into (small dice)

1 head of broccoli cut into medium sized pieces

1 head curly kale, stem removed and thinly sliced

3 tbsp. Clearspring tamari or shoyu (organic soya sauce)

1 tbsp. Clearspring white miso paste dissolved in two tbsp water

1 tbsp freshly squeezed ginger juice

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds

Press the tofu in paper towels to absorb any excess water.  Whisk the soya sauce, miso paste, ginger juice and vinegar in a cup and set aside. Heat the toasted sesame oil in a wok over medium heat and add the garlic, onion and the mushrooms stir well and cook for 5 minutes.   Add the diced tofu and cook on a high heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the kale stir and cover for 5 minutes or until it turns bright green adding a little water if necessary.   Add the broccoli cover for 3 or 4 minutes, if the pan seems dry add a splash more water. Remove from the heat.  Stir in the dressing. Serve in bowls and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

To get the best taste from tofu I dry-fry it and then marinade it for a few hours or you can marinade overnight and leave in the fridge.   To dry-fry simply press excess water out with paper-towel, slice the tofu and place in a dry-frying pan at a low heat and press with a spatula.  You will hear a hissing sound as the excess water is removed.   Turnover and do the other side. To marinade I use 1 tbsp of each – freshly squeezed ginger juice, shoyu and mirin – you can add ¼ tsp turmeric, sweet paprika, garlic powder or whatever taste excites you.

In good health
