Gluten Free Thai Basil Tofu Stir Fry - (Pad Krapow)

When you have Thai basil plant, you don't need an excuse to make Thai dishes, it just comes naturally. For me South Asian dishes are more preferable than Cheesy Mexican or Italian dishes. I have made this Vegetarian Thai basil tofu gluten free means I didn't use soy sauce in it, I have used tamari in it but if you want use dark soy sauce to give that color. Mine was looks white but it packed with flavors. As you can see I have used 1/2 cup of fresh basil leaves to enhance the flavor, well dish name is Thai basil tofu so I have to use it right. You can use minced meat for this too. 

Ingredients : 

1 packet extra firm tofu
2 tbsp oil
1 green capsicum sliced
1 white onion sliced
3 garlic cloves thinly sliced
1/2 inch ginger thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh Thai basil washed
Few Dry red chilies

Sauce :

3 tbsp Tamari or dark soy sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar or maple syrup
1/2 tsp Red pepper flakes

Method : 

Take tofu and squeeze out as much water as you can with tofu pressure or use your conventional way to remove water.

next crumble it with fork or with hands to get minced tofu.

Add the 1 tbsp oil in the pan and saute minced tofu till its little brown. 

Make a well in the pan and add rest of the oil in it, add ginger and garlic and saute for few seconds till you get the nice aroma. Add dry red chilies too. 

Mix it with tofu and add onion and capsicum and mixed it nicely. 

Add the sauce mix and cook for 5 minutes till capsicum is cooked. If you think you still salt add salt and pepper to taste. 

Turn off the heat and stir in thai basil and take that amazing smell . mix it together till the basil wilts. 

Serve with just plain white rice. I had it with rice, stir fry duck and vegan wings.
