Stir fry Tofu and Vegetables for fast, healthy cooking with crunch and flavour

Stir Frying is fast, healthy and delicious. It's really easy to throw a stir fry together - the name says it all, stir - and fry

Prepare everything you need before you start as stir frying is so fast you won't really have time to chop the celery while the onion is cooking.

Make sure that your ingredients are all cut approximately the same size - bite size. Stir-frying uses high heat, so all the pieces of food must be small enough to cook through without burning.

Remember, once you get your pan hot ..... you can't stop.

Step One : Vermicelli



Heat a little oil in your wok to medium heat

Break up the vermicelli into short lengths and cook in batches until crisp

Drain on paper towels

Step Two : Sauce



Combine soy, sherry, oyster and chicken stock

Thicken with the cornflour and a little water

Step Three : Cooking Order


Heat up the wok to high heat. Add a little more oil

Add garlic, ginger, stir fry 1 minute

Add tofu, stir fry 3 minutes. Remove from wok

Add carrot, snowpeas, stir fry 1 minute

Add the sauce and stock. Cover and cook 2 minutes

Step Four : Stir and serve



Return tofu to wok. Add onions, mushrooms, a little more blended cornflour

Stir fry till sauce thickens, about 1 minute

Serve over vermicelli

Tofu

Highly nutritious and protein-rich

Tofu is a highly nutritious, protein-rich food made from the curds of soybean milk. Off-white in colour, it's usually sold in rectangular blocks.

It's a rich source of calcium and iron and an absolutely superb source of protein for vegetarians with over 10 grams in a serving of half a cup.

Tofu contain phytoestrogens, specifically the isoflavones, genistein and diadzein, and is used by countless women to reduce uncomfortable hot flashes. Soy isoflavones also promotes the resorption of bone and inhibits postmenopausal osteoporosis..

Tofu has scarcely any taste at all, it's so bland as to be almost nothing at all, but it miraculously assumes the flavour of surrounding ingredients

      I often get struck with a craving for tofu stir fry and this lens is bringing one on for tonight's dinner! One amazing curry tofu stirfry I will always remember was cooked for me by a friend back when we were students - tofu, fresh noodles, garlic, eggplant and a freshly ground-up organic curry powder... really delicious!
