Tofu Vegetable Stir Fry



A soy-based food that’s made from curdling soy milk and forming it into a solid block. Tofu is a great source of plant-based protein that can be used in all sorts of ways. It’s a great addition to vegetarian and vegan diets, but even if you’re a meat eater, I urge you to try it. Tofu can be used as a meat substitute or as something unique and delicious in its own right! The following recipe is as simple ( and healthy ) as it gets - plus it is super delicious.



Ingredients:


- extra firm I package tofu

- 3 tablespoons corn starch

- 2 stalks broccoli ( florets only )

- 1 ( each ) red, green and yellow bell pepper

- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil



Directions:


- In a large pan bring 4 cups water to a boil, Add rice and two bay leaves. Simmer low covered. Cook until all eater is absorbed.


- Drain tofu with paper towels and gentle squeeze as much of the excess liquid from tofu.

crispy texture once fried. Once coated fry tofu on all sides until until crispy.
