Feed Your Body Friday: Weeknight Tofu Stir-Fry

This recipe for tofu stir-fry is ready in 20 minutes, easy to make, full of flavors and will make your taste buds so SO happy. This is a beautiful vegetarian recipe that will impress anyone (including the picky eaters).

Tofu is a good source of protein that replaces meat well in recipes, but it’s important to know the different varieties when purchasing it. For this recipe, choose a firm tofu for best results. Soft tofu (or silky tofu) crumbles too easily and should only be used in recipes where it can be mashed or mixed in.

Many people turn their nose up at the idea of tofu because they’ve had a bad experience with it. To this I have to say, give tofu a second chance! It’s likely that you’ve never tasted properly cooked and incorporated Tofu, which is a delight.

There are actually many ways to cook it! First of all, as his taste is quite neutral, marinate it before cooking! You could use vegetable broth with spices or soy sauce, like in this recipe. Do it at least 2 hours before using it for best results. Tofu is like a sponge, it will absorb all the flavors.
