Vegan Tofu Fry with Roasted Root Vegetables

I needed to use up my 2 blocks of tofu today or tomorrow, got home to realize I didn’t have the typical stir-fry vegetables. It actually turned out quite good! Serves 8 2 cups brown rice 2 beets chopped into cubes 2 medium sized yams chopped into cubes 2 carrots chopped 3 mushrooms 1 zucchini chopped into cubes 1 onion chopped 2 cloves of garlic 2 TBSP chopped fresh ginger 1 block of tofu ¼ cup sesame oil ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce 2 TBSP cider vinegar 1 TBSP coconut oil Zest from 1 lemon Juice from the same Lemon Chopped Fresh cilantro Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Cook rice accordingly. Toss beets, carrots, yams with sesame oil and a pinch of salt, roast 40 minutes, add zucchini to the last 10 minutes.
Meanwhile combine soy sauce, remaining sesame oil, vinegar and zest in a bowl and toss tofu around about. Heat coconut oil in pan on high heat, cook tofu turning until brown, about 10-15 minutes (longer if you turn off the wrong burner).
In a separate pan sauté garlic, onion, ginger and mushrooms. Part way through I’m realizing I will not have a pan big enough to fry it all together.
Combine roasted vegetables, tofu, and onion mixture all together in one pan and sauté for a few minutes. Add lemon and cilantro to rice. Serve tofu mixture on top of rice. Bon Appetite!
