Ingredients

Sorghum Bowl:

  • 4 teaspoons peanut oil, divided
  • 2 cups chopped asparagus spears
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored and sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced snow peas
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium, gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 (15-ounce) package extra-firm tofu, pressed for 30 minutes and cut into 1-inch cubes (see notes for how to press tofu)
  • 2 cups cooked sorghum (according to package directions)

Thai Sauce:

  • 1 cup light canned coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium, gluten free soy sauce
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch

Instructions

  1. To make sorghum bowl, heat 2 teaspoons peanut oil in a large non-stick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus, carrots, ginger and garlic and stir fry for 1 minute. Add the water to the skillet and cover; let the vegetables steam for about 2 minutes, until bright and tender.
  2. Add the red pepper, snow peas and soy sauce to the skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, 3-4 minutes more, or until all the vegetables are tender-crisp. Remove the vegetables and wipe skillet clean with a paper towel.
  3. Return skillet to medium-heat heat. Add the remaining peanut oil and swirl to coat, then add the tofu. Cook until lightly browned and crisp on all sides, turning occasionally, 5 minutes.
  4. Whisk together all of the ingredients for the Thai sauce then pour over the tofu. Cook for 4-5 minutes until sauce has thickened and tofu is coated. Add back in the vegetables and toss once more to coat.
  5. Divide the cooked sorghum among 4 bowls and top with the vegetables and tofu.
