Tofu Stir-Fry Shortcuts
As written, the recipe is super quick, but if you’re super short on time, there are a few corners you can cut.
One shortcut I always recommend is buying pre-prepped and cut vegetables. They’re just as nutritious as the whole, un-prepped versions.
The second shortcut is to buy a pre-made teriyaki sauce. I love my homemade teriyaki, but if you’re in a pinch, don’t feel bad about purchasing store-bought. I’m a fan of the San-J gluten-free Teriyaki sauce as well as the Primal Kitchen no soy teriyaki sauce.
Ingredients in Tofu Stir-Fry
extra firm tofu – be sure to get firm or extra firm tofu… soft or silken tofu can be mushy and won’t work as well for stir-frying.
vegetables – garlic, red bell pepper, red onion, fresh broccoli florets and green onions are what I used but feel free to swap in your favorites or what you have on hand.
teriyaki sauce – I like to make my homemade version from Fit With Five with some added chili garlic sauce, but store bought works as well. If you use store-bought sauce you’ll need about 1/3 cup.
rice – white or brown rice works great with this stir-fry, but cauliflower rice is awesome if you want to…
