Plated Tofu, Cashew, and Snow Pea Stir-Fry

While I thought this was a tasty dish, I  felt like it lacked flavor.  There just wasn’t enough sauce to20150129_175914 go around, as 1.5 TBS hoisin sauce, 1 packet soy sauce, and 1/2 tsp of chili garlic sauce made just a tiny bit.  If I made this again, I would probably add at least an extra tablespoon of hoisin and probably a quarter cup of soy sauce.  Maybe I just like things saucy?  Plated said this would take 35-45 minutes, it took me 49.

This is the second time I’ve had tofu from Plated, I’m 20150129_182101still struggling with the best way to drain and cut it.  This time I put it on two paper towels on a plate, then put two more paper towels on top, then put my Kitchenaid mixer on top of that. But it is still really crumbly and impossible for me to cut into perfect cute little squares.

Not too much chopping in this one, just the tofu, cashews, onion, garlic, and ginger.  The most 20150129_182636labor intensive part with exception to chopping was cooking the tofu, and turning it to make sure all sides were brown.  All in all, a decent dish, but as I said earlier, could have used more flavor.
