Vegemite stir fry (v, lf)

This casual dish takes Vegemite from spread to sauce!
Serves 2.

Original post (with pictures) here.

1 1/2 tbsp Vegemite, or equivalent spread (you could easily double this if you wanted a stronger taste)
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 cup water
350g (1 block) firm tofu, sliced and pressed
1 small onion, diced

Stir fry vegetables of choice such as -
1 small head broccoli, cut into florets
1 bunch bok choi, roughly chopped
1 carrot, thinly sliced
Handful mushrooms, sliced

Srirachi or other chilli sauce, for drizzling

Rice, quinoa or noodles, for serving, as desired

1. Combine the Vegemite, nutritional yeast and water in a shallow baking dish and whisk to combine. Add the sliced and pressed tofu and allow to marinate for at least 15 minutes, but preferably 30-60 minutes.
2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat and cook the tofu pieces until lightly golden. Retain the extra Vegemite marinade/sauce.
3. Remove the tofu pieces and add the onion and other vegetables to your pan, along with the remaining Vegemite marinade. Cook over low-medium heat for approximately 5 minutes. Return the tofu to the pan and keep over low-medium heat for a further 5-10 minutes.
4. Serve drizzled with Srirarchi or other hot sauce (this really makes the dish!), plus rice / quinoa / noodles as desired.
