- 6 to 8 button mushrooms (sliced)
- 1 large bunch Swiss chard (any kind, chopped)
- 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt (or to taste)
- Optional: dash cayenne pepper
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
- Add the garlic and heat for just a minute or two, until lightly browned.
- Add the chopped tofu and heat until lightly golden brown on all sides, stirring occasionally as needed.
- Once the tofu is almost cooked, add a splash of soy sauce, stirring to coat the tofu well, then add the mushrooms.
- Heat the mushrooms with the tofu for another minute, then add the chopped Swiss chard.
- Drizzle with sesame oil, and stir, then sprinkle with a bit of sea salt and a dash of cayenne pepper.
- Allow the Swiss chard to cook down just a bit, until slightly wilted but still tender, rather than soft.
- Can’t find Swiss chard? Try it with Napa cabbage (you’ll need to lengthen the cooking time a bit) or even beet greens.
- Don’t throw out those Swiss chard stems! besides adding them to the pot whenever you next make a soup or vegetable broth, Swiss chard stems can also be roasted into a cheesy side dish. Here’s how: Roasted Swiss chard stem gratin recipe
- A steaming bowl of simple miso soup would nicely round out this simple stir-fry.
- Instead of pairing this stir-fry with rice, add a bit more sesame oil and soy sauce, and toss with cooked Asian noodles. Try rice noodles, udon noodles or soba noodles.
- For a spicier kick, add a touch of hot sauce, such as an Asian sriracha sauce.
- Toss any leftovers with quinoa and a sesame vinaigrette or a Japanese ginger dressing to turn into an Asian-inspired quinoa salad.
