Thai Tofu Stir Fry

Thai Tofu Stir Fry

I have really fond memories of the first time I ate tofu on a family holiday to Malaysia.  I’m really pleased to see that here in Oman tofu is everywhere, who knew there were so many different types, for this recipe I use a firm tofu, it makes a great substitute for chicken.

Serves 2

10 Minutes Prep

10 -15 Minutes Cooking

  • 1 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • ½ Large Onion sliced
  • 1 tbsp of your favourite Thai curry paste I used Red Thai paste for this if you like a more mild flavour yellow or green Thai paste work just as well
  • 6-8 mushrooms quartered
  • ½ Red Pepper sliced
  • ½ Green Pepper sliced
  • 4-6 Okra chop the tops off discard, and sliced in half
  • 1 Courgette – Spirialized or ribboned
  • 400g Tofu diced
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • ½ lemon



Heat the sesame oil in a wok on a medium heat then add the onions and sauté until soft.  Add the Thai curry paste and cook gentle for 1 minute to release the flavours.

Add the mushrooms and cook for 1-2 minutes.

Add a splash of water and then the rest of the ingredients except the lemon, and cook for 5 minutes. Finally add a squeeze of lemon stir and then serve.
