For the sauce you should get:
1 inch minced ginger
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/4 cup honey
2 cloves minced garlic
3 tablespoons soy sauce


To start making the Szechuan tofu, you need to cut the tofu into small cubes. Make the sauce by mixing the honey, soy sauce, ginger, rice vinegar, and garlic.

Pour 2 tablespoons of the olive oil on a skillet and wait until it’s hot. Add the five spice powder and mix it for 2 minutes. Include the salt and tofu, then leave it on the stove for 3 to 4 minutes. Place it on a plate.

With the 2 remaining spoons of olive oil, cook the vegetables. Stir-fry them for 4 to 5 minutes. When they are done, add them to the tofu. You can also serve this meal with rice or quinoa.
