Ingredients

  • Sauce:

    • 1 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
    • 1 Tbsp. rice wine
    • ¼ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
    • 2 tsp. sesame oil
    • 1 tsp. cornstarch
    • ¼ tsp. salt
    • ¼ tsp. pepper
    • ¼ tsp. sugar

    Stir Fry:

    • 1 bunch kale, torn
    • 1 Tbsp. peanut oil
    • 14 oz. firm tofu, halved lengthwise and sliced
    • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
    • 1 Tbsp. minced ginger
    • 1 serrano pepper, seeded and minced
    • 1 bell pepper, sliced

Directions

  1. Bring a kettle of water to a boil.
  2. While kettle is coming to a boil, whisk together sauce ingredients and set aside.
  3. Place kale in a strainer and blanch kale by pouring boiling water over. Rinse with cold water immediately.
  4. Preheat peanut oil in a large skillet over high. Add the tofu and stir-fry until it begins to color (1-2 minutes). Add the garlic, ginger, and serrano and cook until fragrant (15-30 seconds).
  5. Add the red pepper and cook until just tender (2-3 minutes). Add the kale and sauce and toss to combine. Cook until the sauce just thickens and coats the ingredients (1 minute).
