This is a wonderful opportunity to share a favorite recipe of mine to for 2012 and to commemorate my new home at Secret Laboratory.
Eating healthier is a serious goal of mine for 2012, especially with my recent diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. It is definitely one of my favorites that I have concocted. The following recipe feeds three.
Stir-fried tofu with vegetables
- 1/2 package of firm tofu
- 2 tsp. olive oil
- Garlic pepper
- Dried onions or chopped fresh onions
- Small bag of stir fry frozen vegetables
- Handful of shredded cheese
Drain the tofu and dry on cheesecloth or paper towels. Cut into cubes and add to hot frying pan with olive oil. Sprinkle tofu with garlic pepper and add onions to taste. Cook on medium high stirring often until tofu starts to brown. Add frozen vegetables and lower heat to medium. Cook until vegetables are done. Sprinkle cheese (I use cheddar) over mixture and continue to cook until cheese is melted. Serve hot. Fresh vegetables can be added instead of frozen, but frozen is more cost effective and easier.
If you have never had tofu, give this a try. You might end up liking it.
