How to Make It

Place tofu in a medium skillet or saucepan and add broth; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the tofu to a plate or bowl to cool. Cool and refrigerate the broth, reserving it for another use.

Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, soy sauce, 2 teaspoons sesame oil and tahini (or cashew butter) in a large bowl until smooth.

Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in slivered peas and cook, stirring, until bright green, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the dressing. Enjoy your vegan stir-fry!

Add the tofu to the bowl with the peas; toss to combine. Serve sprinkled with cashews.
