Yesterday, there was a 30-second segment on Sesame Street in which the characters talked about tofu. Tofu? Grace asked me. What’s tofu? I explained that it’s a food that I really like. Can we have tofu for supper tonight? I agreed, and I told Grace that we’d have to pick some up on our way home. Unfortunately, we stayed at our friend’s house too long (oohing and aahing over some four-week-old puppies) and didn’t even walk into the grocery store until after 5. I needed a quick and easy supper solution. Featuring tofu. I grabbed a bag of pre-cut broccoli, cauliflower, and baby carrots, a package of extra firm tofu, a bottle of House of Tsang’s General Tsao’s Stir Fry sauce, and a can of water chestnuts and left the store.
When we arrived home twenty minutes later, I threw it together, and we had a really tasty stir fry supper.
If you don’t like tofu, and aren’t feeling adventurous, you could eat this without a protein or use small pieces of any meat – chicken, pork, beef, whatever.
