Tofu-Vegetable Stir-Fry

Not bad. I think it could use more spice though. Maybe a tiny bit more Sriracha?

1 cup white or jasmine rice
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Asian chile sauce (such as Sriracha)
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons sesame oil
4 scallions, sliced (white and green parts separated)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1-inch piece ginger, peeled and finely chopped
4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and chopped
4 ounces snow peas
1 14-ounce package soft tofu, drained and cut into 1-inch cubes

Cook the rice as the label directs. Meanwhile, whisk the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, vinegar, chile sauce, cornstarch and 1 cup water in a small bowl until smooth; set aside.

Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallion whites, garlic and ginger and stir-fry 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms and stir-fry until golden brown and tender, about 3 minutes. Add the snow peas and stir-fry 30 more seconds.

Whisk the reserved soy sauce mixture and add it to the wok. Bring to a simmer, then add the tofu. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with the scallion greens.

Fluff the rice with a fork and divide among bowls. Top with the stir-fry and sauce.
