SNFC Healthy Eating Recipes: This Tofu Stir-fry with Asparagus and Basil courtesy of the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op requires a wee bit of commitment on the front end - slicing, dicing, and chopping - all completely worth it! Each time an ingredient hits the hot pan, the scent unfurls toward you in an intense bouquet. You just know it's going to be good. Asparagus and tofu form the base of this ensemble, but it has quite a lot going on beyond that. You get a bite of heat from the red chilies and fresh ginger, basil to cool things down, and a touch of hoisin sauce gives you just enough sweetness to balance it all out.
