Have you ever had braised tofu at a restaurant and assumed it was too difficult to attempt at home? Take heart; it’s easier than you think. Not only that, you can enjoy Braised Tofu featuring Impossible™ Beef Made From Plants, giving you a bold, satiating, and protein-rich meal that goes from your cutting board to the table in just 40 minutes. If you’re somewhat inexperienced with cooking tofu, or you’re just looking for a simple recipe that offers some new tastes and textures, this is a great one to try out.

The real key to this recipe is using silken tofu. This is the softest and most fragile tofu, crucial for achieving the crispy outside and plush inside that characterizes traditional braised tofu.

Everything starts with prepping your tofu and veggies, followed by marinating the Impossible Beef. You’ll then carefully pan fry the tofu slices on each side and place them on a separate plate while you stir fry the Impossible Beef and veggies. Throw in your remaining seasonings with the fried tofu, cook until the sauce is reduced, top with spring onions and coriander, and you’ve got yourself a restaurant-worthy dish that can serve up to six people, all of whom who are about to appreciate the wonders of perfectly-braised tofu and meat made from plants in vibrant, delicious harmony. Or just you. Either way, someone wins. You’re going to be making this again soon.
