Stir in the soy sauce and rice wine and cook for another minute. Divide between 4 serving bowls or plates and top with the tofu slices. Serve straight away.

Cook’s tips

Tofu is fragile and can be quite tricky to turn when cooking, so it helps if the pieces aren’t too long or wide.

As an alternative flavour to your stir-fry, try using a pouch of one of our delicious fresh Stir Fry Sauces, such as Plum & Hoisin or Sweet Chilli.
