Prep Time



Total Time






1 1/4
cups water
cup uncooked instant brown rice
cup stir-fry sauce
tablespoons orange juice
tablespoon honey
teaspoon five-spice powder
package (14 ounces) firm tofu, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
small red onion, cut into thin wedges
bag (1 pound) frozen baby bean and carrot blend
cup water
  1. Heat 1 1/4 cups water to boiling in 1-quart saucepan. Stir in rice; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, mix stir-fry sauce, orange juice, honey and five-spice powder in medium bowl. Press tofu between paper towels to absorb excess moisture. Stir tofu into sauce mixture; let stand 10 minutes to marinate.
  3. Spray 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Remove tofu from sauce mixture; reserve sauce mixture. Cook tofu in skillet 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, just until light golden brown. Remove tofu from skillet.
  4. Cook onion in skillet 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add frozen vegetables and 1/4 cup water. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender.
  5. Stir in reserved sauce mixture and tofu. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture is slightly thickened and hot. Serve over rice.
