  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon cornstarch, divided
  • 1 pound extra-firm tofu, chopped into 1/2-inch cubes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed or canola oil, divided
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 pound carrots, thinly chopped
  • 1/2 pound snow peas, ends trimmed
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup roasted cashews
  • 1 cup chopped green onions



1. Toss tofu with 1/2 cup cornstarch and season with salt and pepper to taste.
2. Make sauce by mixing remaining 1 tablespoon cornstarch, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, tomato paste, and chicken stock.
3. Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil and tofu, and saute tofu until golden, about 2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
4. Add remaining oil to the pan. Add garlic, onion, and 1 dash salt, and saute onions until softened, about 2 minutes. Add carrots and 1 dash salt, and stir-fry 4 minutes. Add snow peas and stir. Return tofu to wok, and push all ingredients to the side of pan to form a donut in the middle. Stir sauce in case cornstarch has sunk to the bottom. Pour into the center of the pan, and cook for 1 minute until darkened and bubbling. Toss everything to coat and cook an additional 1 minute.
5. Remove from heat and add lemon juice and cashews. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Serve topped with green onions.
