Hey friends, I finally managed to wrap up my recipe notes and summarize this amazing recipe for you on the blog. Especially for the Asian cuisine lovers amongst you, I promise you will love this dish. And the cool thing - the recipe is loaded with nutrients, it is a whole, balanced meal and the tofu tastes amazing and is just so much better than at least 95% of the real chicken out there. :)
A few hacks on the recipe: To make the dish extra delicious, try to combine cooked with raw vegetables, add a crunchy topping and make the base extra creamy. That way, you get to experience many different textures aside from the delicious flavors. For this recipe, I added raw spring onions as a finish, topped everything with toasted sesame seeds for the crunch, added plant milk to the sauce for additional creaminess, and cooked the stir fry veggies until they reached their perfect hot and almost soft texture.
The rice I used for this recipe is extra special because aside from it being "naturally whole grain", it has also been sprouted. Sprouted rice has less phytic acid than traditional rice, it has an alkaline effect and, on top of all, the germination process even increases the bioavailability of the vitamins, minerals, and secondary plant substances.*
So as you can tell, I'm a huge fan of sprouted foods. I actually wrote tons of posts about the benefits of sprouting foods a while ago and I highly recommend you checking them out - especially my blog post on 5+1 reasons why you should get into sprouting.
So now the question: Where to find sprouted rice: My best recommendation for all Germans is Aho Bio. They have an amazing, organic, natural product portfolio, including the sprouted rice I used for this recipe.**

I hope you enjoy this deliciously healthy, balanced & protein-rich Asian-vegan recipe as much as I do. The Asian cuisine is so incredibly versatile. Every time I experiment with a new veggie and the umami-rich sauces, I'm amazed. Plus, it's truly one of my favorite ways to prepare Tofu.
