Brussels Sprouts, Apple & Tofu Delight
Brussels Sprouts, Apple & Tofu Delight
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 2-3
  • l large, crisp apple, cut into bite sized pieces (I used a bright green granny smith and it was perfect)
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 4 ounces extra-firm tofu cut into inch cubes
  • 12 ounces brussels sprouts, washed and cut into ribbons
  • ¼ cup vegetable broth for sautéing (or more)
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • tbsp of maple syrup
  1. Soak the cut apples in a bowl filled with water and juice of one lemon.
  2. Heat the vegetable broth in a large frying pan with bit of salt & pepper. When hot, saute the tofu until golden brown, about 4-7 minutes. Stir in the garlic, cook 30 seconds, add the maple syrup and cook another 30 seconds or so. Add more vegetable broth if sticking. Drain the apples, and add them to the frying pan, cooking for another minute. Scrape the apple and tofu mixture on a plate and set aside while you cook the brussels sprouts.
  3. In the same pan (no need to wash), add more vegetable broth, another pinch of salt and heat up to medium-high. When the pan is hot, stir in the shredded brussels sprouts. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until you get some golden bits and the sprouts are bright green. Add a little vegetable broth if needed.
  4. Stir the apple mixture back into the frying pan alongside the brussels sprouts and gently stir to combine. Remove from heat and serve.
