4 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup rice and 1 1/2 cups mushroom mixture)

Be careful when stir-frying sesame seeds as they tend to pop and splatter. If you can't find black sesame seeds, use light sesame seeds instead.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine sesame seeds and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the tofu cubes; toss gently to coat. Combine oils in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu; stir-fry 5 minutes or until tofu is golden. Remove tofu from pan; keep warm.

Step 2

Return pan to heat; coat with cooking spray. Add mushrooms; stir-fry 3 minutes or until mushrooms begin to brown. Add asparagus; stir-fry 4 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender. Reduce heat to medium; stir in green onions.

Step 3

Combine broth and next 4 ingredients (broth through garlic sauce). Add broth mixture to pan; remove from heat (sauce will thicken). Add tofu and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; toss gently to combine. Serve over rice.

One of the best stir-fries I've ever made. Followed directions except that I added some fresh chopped ginger and gold bell pepper, and I stir-fried all the vegetables at one time, which worked just fine. Flavors are great, and I wouldn't omit a thing.

Excellent recipe! We enjoyed it more with noodles the second time instead of rice. A favorite for sure.

This is really really good and for a weeknight dinner i'd give it 5 stars - but it's not an entertaining company dish - it's dinner and really good. Used green beans instead of aspargus as another reviewer suggested - my husband isn't a fan. I used more garlic sauce because we look it hotter - will probably add a little siracha next time. I loved the texture of the tofu with the sesame seeds - we weighted the tofu between paper towels to get excess water out of it - this is a definite keeper.

Carnivore husband loved it and even my extremely picky two year old daughter ate it. Definitely will make again but next time with more sauce!

Love it. A suggestion is to take time getting the tofu dry enough to fry. A family favorite!

Very good. Followed the recipe as written and really enjoyed it. Served the stir fry with pan-fried dumplings.

My fiance is not a fan of asparagus. So, I made this with green beans instead of the asparagus and it was great. Added some green garlic for some added flavor instead of the green onions. Looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow.
