Tofu and Green Vegetable Stir Fry (v)

A quick, easy and very very non french dinner to welcome us home 🙂

For 3 people you need:

1 cup rice, cooked
1 pack stirfry veggies (I used M&S tender veg stir fry)
1 pack tenderstem broccoli, stems sliced, heads left whole
1 packet marinated tofu
1 jar wagamama teryaki sauce
1 onion, sliced

Boil the rice. Meanwhile stirfry the onion and broccoli stems in a little oil for 4-5 mins. Add everything else and cover with a lid to steam the veggies. Serve with the rice. Sigh with contentment that you are no longer confined to cheese, cheese, more cheese and eggs 🙂


Quinoa with Smoked Tofu and Stir Fried Veggies

I love quinoa and by stealth have now got L eating it (“what’s this mummy?” “erm, rice, different rice”). This is a very quick meal and very tasty too.

For 3 portions and a little bit left over for lunch the next day you need:
1 cup quinoa
scant 2 cups stock
1 pack smoked tofu
selection of veggies to stir fry – I used 1 head broccoli; 1 onion; handful baby sweetcorn
3 cloves garlic, crushed
large knob ginger, grated
1/4 cup sherry
couple of glugs of each soya sauce and mirin
2 tsp chinese rice vinegar
bean sprouts and sprouted seeds to top
sesame oil

Begin by cooking the quinoa. Place it in a pan with the stock and bring to the boil. Cover with a lid and simmer for 10 mins. Turn off the heat and leave to absorb all the liquid (about another 10 mins).
Stir fry the onion for a few mins then add the other ingredients. Cook for about 5 mins with a lid till the broccoli is tender.

Serve topped with the bean sprouts and sprouted seeds and a splash of sesame oil. Very yummy and disgustingly healthy too.
