Tofu Stir-Fry


I love a good stir-fry. Add in some fried tofu and OMGoodness, I am in paradise! This recipe is great with leftover vegetables and almost all the ingredients for the sauce are on hand in your pantry. Homemade Tofu Stir-fry is so much healthier and way more delicious than any restaurant could serve you. Plus, this is a Vegan & Vegetarian dish! Yay! But if you are not into that you can add as much meat to this recipe as you would like.

Delicious Rating: This meal has a few steps that can get a bit scary for a beginner cook (frying tofu, oh my!) but don’t fret, the whole meal is done in about 20 minutes. A Quick and Easy recipe right? It is the perfect lunch in my house when I am craving rice and a little spice.

If you read this blog enough then you know I love fried tofu! I usually just pan fry the tofu in a little bit of oil and sprinkle with some pepper…total yum. This recipe requires that you coat the tofu with some cornstarch which gave it  it a nice crispy coating. Totally delicious. I almost ate all of it until I remembered I was cooking a full meal!

This sauce is so good. I can’t really describe how good. But I know that if you cook this recipe you will be like, “Yeah, this sauce is so good!”
