Tofu Stir Fry with Sriracha Sauce

Crispy pan-seared tofu, colorful veggies, spicy sriracha sauce, and comforting rice noodles all come together for a delicious meatless meal. It’s satisfying for vegetarians and meat eaters alike.

You can easily control the spice level, too, by adding more or less sriracha to the sauce (if you’re Matt, you want more, if you’re me, you want less). I like to add a sprinkle of sesame seeds, too – adds a little extra flavor and texture!

Stir fries are the holy grail of quick weeknight meals. They’re easy, healthy, and don’t require too much prep or cook time.

This one is even simpler than some others, since you don’t have to worry about making sure the tofu is ‘safely’ cooked through (like you would with meat). Just toss it all together and stir fry it up!

How to Make Sriracha Tofu Stir Fry

First, peel and slice the carrots into 1/2-inch thick pieces.

Par-cook them by microwaving them with a splash of water for a minute or two. Set aside. (Alternatively, you can roast the sliced carrots on a sheet pan – with a drizzle of olive oil and ground pepper – at 400 degrees F for 18-22 minutes.)

Next, if serving with noodles or rice, cook according to the package directions.

At this point, you’ll want to mix up your sauce, too.

Combine sriracha, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, fresh garlic, and fresh ginger in a jar or small bowl, and whisk together. Set aside. (Exact measurements are in the recipe card at the end of the post.)

Then, pan-fry your tofu.

First, pour out any liquid from the package, then cut the tofu into cubes.

Heat a skillet over medium-high to high heat with a hefty drizzle of olive oil (or sesame oil). Fry on both sides for 2-3 minutes each, or until lightly crispy. Set aside on a plate.
