Meatless Monday: Tofu Stir-Fry

tofu stir fry

Tasty meatless Monday!  Our love of tofu did not come natural…we just got into it over the last year & now it is a staple in the fridge – so low in calories but dense in protein.  The perfect substitute for meat!

  • Half a tofu block lengthwise, slice each half into 8 rectangles – grab a baking sheet and line with doubled-up paper towels…lay down tofu…cover with doubled-up paper towels then place another baking sheet on top.  Refrigerate for at least 20minutes (up to 24hrs)
  • In a bowl whisk together 2T braggs (instead of soy sauce), 1T rice vinegar, 1t sesame oil & 1T EVOO
  • Place tofu in deep dish & pour mixture over – marinate for 5minutes
  • In wok/deep skillet spray cooking oil & add 1 diced white onion
  • Once onion is browned add 1C quartered mushrooms, 1 sliced red pepper, 1 large head of diced bok choy, 1C snap peas & a few pieces of thinly sliced ginger – let this simmer
  • While the veggies are cooking spray a pan on the stove top with cooking oil – lay tofu slices down & pan fry till golden
  • Add the marinade left from the tofu to the wok, then mix in 1t cornstarch & 2t cold water – stir

Serve veggies & add browned tofu on top…if you want more in the mix cook some brown rice & have a side ginger salad! Enjoy!
