Healthy Tofu (or Chicken) & Broccoli Stir-Fry Recipe With Peanut Sauce Has a Surprising Ingredient

Powdered peanut butter? Yep, you read right. This healthy stir-fry recipe uses protein-packed peanut butter powder and can be made vegetarian with tofu or with boneless chicken.

Cuisine: Asian/American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 3 cups broccoli, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 30 ounces silken extra-firm tofu, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (I like Mori-Nu® Silken extra-firm tofu) or 18 ounces boneless chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • 3 tablespoons powdered peanut butter (I like PB2 powdered peanut butter)
  • 3 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

Here's how to make it:

  1. Coat a nonstick pan with 1 teaspoon of oil. Sauté the broccoli on medium heat until tender. Set aside in bowl.
  2. Add another teaspoon of oil to the same pan and cook the garlic and ginger for 2 minutes or until golden in color. 
  3. Add tofu or chicken and sauté on medium heat until cooked through.
  4. While the chicken or tofu is cooking, make the sauce by adding the hot water to the peanut butter powder. Add the soy sauce and rice vinegar. Whisk until well mixed and then pour into the pan.
  5. Add the broccoli. Toss until thoroughly combined.
