  • 1 lb. firm tofu, drained
  • 1⁄2 cup vegetarian chicken-flavored broth
  • 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. minced ginger
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. water, optional
  • 1⁄2 cup unsalted cashews


  • Cut the tofu into 3⁄4-inch cubes.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the vegetarian chicken-flavored broth, soy sauce, lemon juice, and sugar. Whisk in the cornstarch.
  • Heat oil in a heavy skillet or wok over medium-high heat; add ginger and stir for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Add broccoli and bell pepper and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes, until they are tender but still crisp. Add the tofu cubes, and stir-fry for 1–2 minutes, or until lightly-browned. Stir the sauce and swirl into the pan. Bring to a boil and cook for about 2 more minutes to heat through. Stir in the cashews. Serve hot.
