tofu with vegetables recipes
Tofu is usually made into tofu vegetable soup in Asia. I use tofu to stir up colorful vegetables. stir-fry beef or chicken, and replace it with tofu and stir-fry vegetables. This is also a good choice for vegetarian food.
The tofu goes into the pan and gets cooked until browned and crispy. Mix your tofu and veggies with a sweet and savory sauce.
This colorful dish consists of tofu, pan-fried with a small amount of oil to give it that extra texture needed to absorb the sauce without the added fat of deep-frying. I also add fresh vegetables such as broccoli, and onions. The sauce is comprised mainly of every day ingredients and is extremely easy to make.
