Preparing the Teriyaki Almond Sauce
In a medium sized bowl, combine all of the sauce ingredients and blend to create a sauce.
Pan-frying the tofu
Heat 1 tbsp of sesame oil or avocado oil in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat.
Arrange your cubed tofu in the wok. Cook until golden-brown, about 3-4 minutes.
Flip each piece and brown the other side, cook for another 3-4 minutes.
Once the tofu is cooked, pour it into the prepared teriyaki sauce and let it sit until you've cooked your vegetables.
Stir-frying the vegetables
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a wok over medium-high heat.
Add 3 heads of garlic minced
Add the broccoli florets, zucchini and the mushroom and cook for 2 minutes, stirring regularly.
Add a few dashes of soy sauce and cook until sauce gone and vegetables are cooked . Pour into a bowl and set aside.
Finishing the Teriyaki Peanut Tofu
Reheat your wok and pour the tofu and sauce mixture into the hot pan.
The sauce should bubble and thicken, stir constantly to prevent the sauce from burning.
Once the sauce is thick (about 1-1.5 minutes) remove from heat.
Serve the ¼ of the vegetables and ¼ of the tofu on a bed of brown rice (about ¾ cup).
