Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 12 oz (350g) firm tofu, cut into strips
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and sliced
  • 9 oz (250g) mixed mushrooms, quartered or sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2/3 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup creme fraiche or sour cream
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped chives

Instructions

Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. Stir-fry the tofu until golden. Transfer to a plate.
