Shutterbean recipes never disappoint. I was excited when she posted this recipe for Thai Basil Tofu and decided to make it right away! Comes together in no time and was delicious. I added spinach and threw some peanuts in at the end.

heres what I did:

  • 1 block tofu (extra firm), cubed
  • 1 heaping tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ cup tamari
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 heaping tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon cracked pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ inch knob ginger, minced
  • 2 red bell peppers, chopped
  • 4 scallions, chopped (both white & green parts)
  • 1 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • lime, for serving


Cube pressed tofu, and throw in the air fryer for about 10-12 minutues.
Make the stir fry sauce, combine tamari, water, maple syrup and cornstarch.  Set aside.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add tofu and cook, and garlic and ginger and cook for about 3-4 minutes.

Add in the stir fry sauce and ground pepper. Cook for about a minute, then add in the red peppers, scallions, spinach and basil and cook for another 5-6 minutes, or until peppers have slightly softened.  Serve over rice, and top with crushed peanuts and lime.
