Stir-Fried Tofu with Leafy Greens and Tomatoes

Stir-Fried Tofu With Leafy Greens

I like stir-fries so much because you can put pretty much everything in it and make it delicious and healthy. In this recipe, I used my leftover vegetables and added tomatoes for an extra kick of flavour! You can substitute whatever vegetable you currently have on hand in this Stir-fried Tofu recipe.

Ingredients In Making Stir-Fried Tofu:

Fresh or frozen Tofu

Low-sodium Soy Sauce

Freshly Ground Black Pepper  

Minced Garlic

Minced Ginger

String Beans (or any vegetable of your choice)

Tomatoes

Green Onions

Instructions:

  1. In a pot of salted boiling water, simmer tofu for 2 minutes. If you are using frozen tofu, simmer until it’s completely defrosted. Remove from heat and let drain. Gently squeeze and pat the tofu dry when it’s cool enough to handle.
  2. Cut the tofu and toss them together with soy sauce, sesame oil and black pepper.
  3. Using a separate skillet, cook tofu until golden on all sides for about 7 minutes. Season the tofu with salt and pepper.
  4. Add string beans (or any leafy greens of your choice), tomatoes, and green onions. Cook until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Enjoy!
