- 2 tablespoons soy sauce (30 ml)
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar (15 ml)
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce (15 ml)
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil (15 ml)
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (30 ml)
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated

- 1 cup broccoli florets (150 g)

- Start by preparing the tofu. Cut the drained and pressed tofu into bite-sized cubes.
- In a shallow bowl, combine the cornstarch with a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss the tofu cubes in the cornstarch mixture until evenly coated.
- Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the coated tofu cubes to the skillet and cook until crispy and golden brown on all sides, about 8-10 minutes. Remove the tofu from the skillet and set aside.
- In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger, and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
- Add the bell pepper, carrot, broccoli florets, and snap peas to the skillet. Stir-fry for about 5 minutes until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, hoisin sauce, and sesame oil. Pour the sauce over the vegetables in the skillet and stir to coat.
- Return the crispy tofu to the skillet and gently toss with the vegetables and sauce. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until everything is heated through.
- Remove from heat and garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
- Serve the Crispy Tofu Stir-Fry over cooked rice or noodles.
