- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

- Add mushrooms and tofu and stir to cook until nicely browned, about 3-4 minutes.

Tofu and mushroom stir fry tastes best fresh, but you can certainly store leftovers for another day. Once cooled, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days.
How to reheat: You can reheat leftovers on the stovetop or in the microwave:
- To reheat on the stove: Reheat in a wok or skillet over medium-low heat until thoroughly warmed, about 5-10 minutes. You can reheat leftover rice at the the same time too if you want everything mixed together.
- To reheat in the microwave: Place in a microwave-safe bowl, cover the entire bowl with a damp paper towel and reheat in 15-second increments until hot. This will steam the leftovers and prevent them from drying out.
