  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce

Thai Sauce

  • 1 cup light canned coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste

  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  1. To make sorghum bowl, heat 2 teaspoons peanut oil in a large non-stick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus, carrots, ginger and garlic and stir fry for 1 minute. Add the water to the skillet and cover; let the vegetables steam for about 2 minutes, until bright and tender.
  2. Add the red pepper, snow peas and soy sauce to the skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, 3-4 minutes more, or until all the vegetables are tender-crisp. Remove the vegetables and wipe skillet clean with a paper towel.
  3. Return skillet to medium-heat heat. Add the remaining peanut oil and swirl to coat, then add the tofu. Cook until lightly browned and crisp on all sides, turning occasionally, 5 minutes.
  4. Whisk together all of the ingredients for the Thai sauce then pour over the tofu. Cook for 4-5 minutes until until sauce has thickened and tofu is coated. Add back in the vegetables and toss once more to coat.
  5. Divide the cooked sorghum among 4 bowls and top with the vegetables and tofu.
