Healthy Tofu Stir Fry (or how to introduce tofu to your man)
Posted Aug 09 2012 9:24pm
I have for you today a very easy, quick and healthy vegan dinner. It will take you around 20 min. It might seems weird but I like tofu as is, of course not everyone is like that (For example my husband;) who eat lots of hmm....I call it “ shitty take outs”; he call it “ethnic food”. Both true but at the end of the day it’s pretty unhealthy to eat this way EVERY DAY. So since I moved forward with my healthy diet (basically it was my personal choice to finally heal my body) it became really challenging to make 2 separate dinners every night for both of us. Finally I started to introduce him to tofu which he finds: boring. Well, maybe..but healthy if you choose the organic one and a great source of protein if you work out. I believe it’s a matter how you put into the perspective…
Stir fry is something what he likes so lets try it;)
Health Tofu Stir Fry
1 package of organic firm tofu, drained, cut into cubes
½ bag frozen stir fry vegetables of your choice
I added 1/3 cup of 2 kinds of pepper and soya beans, mushrooms, onion
2 -3 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy source or “ BRAGG” Liquid Soy Seasoning (since I avoid gluten) spices: black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, nutritional yeasts, you can add sesame seeds on top as well
½ bag of Rice noodles or regular
Cook the noodles and frozen vegetable, drain and put it on the side.
Lightly coat the tofu with soy sauce and 1 tsp of nutritional yeast, toss it gently and let it marinate for a little bit.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over on high. Add tofu until in begins to brown. Remove tofu and add veggies, stir gently for a few minutes. Now add tofu and noodles, lower the heat, sprinkle with yeast and sesame seeds and a spoon of Liquid Soy Seasoning. Serve warm.
Very simple way to satisfy both of us. Hope you will enjoy it as well.
