1 Tbl Oil
1 Onion, chopped
2 Celery stalks, diced
8 oz package Mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
Fresh herbs, chopped finely (I used Sage)
4 Tbl Whole Wheat Flour
5 cups Vegetable Broth
1 Tbl Lite Soy Sauce
3 cups Brown Rice
opt: Tofu strips, cooked and cut into cubes
(pan-fried or baked previously)
green onion, optional
Heat oil in deep sided skillet or large saucepan. Saute onion, celery, mushrooms, and herbs till softened, stir in flour and cook just a little bit till browned a little, and then add vegetable broth and soy sauce. Cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes until rice is cooked. Try not to open lid often while cooking. Optional : Add already cooked tofu at the end and serve when all is warm.
In this Bok Choy and Baked Tofu Stir-fry wtih Ginger-Citrus Sauce recipe I explain how I make baked tofu. If done right, tofu tastes good! I like when my friends say "there was tofu in that?" That's when I think it's done right-when it's not noticable but enhances a dish. Tofu is great because it takes on any flavor it's with.
Garnish this dish with chopped green onion and enjoy.
