Tofu Stir-fries are one of my staples, and these are a sampling of some that I’ve made.
1) Tofu with Soba Noodles
I usually serve tofu stir-fries on top of brown rice, but like to eat them with soba noodles too. For all these tofu dishes, I dry the tofu, then stir-fry it with some vegetables, and sometimes beans and nuts. With the soba noodle dish, I boil the noodles separately, then add them into the pan to cook a little with the tofu stir-fry. I like this dish with either a peanut sauce or soy ginger sauce.
2) Red Curry Tofu
I have yet to make my own curry sauce, and Trader Joe’s sells great red, yellow, and green curry sauces, so I have less motivation to do so. This one I made with the red curry sauce, and I liked the combination of eggplant and green beans in the dish.
3) Yellow Curry Tofu
For this dish, I stir-fried the tofu in salsa, and added some guacamole on top.
Instead of a Thai-flavored sauce, I used an Indian Jalfrezi sauce and stir-fried the tofu in that with some vegetables. I can see my gas stove from my old apartment in this picture, which I greatly miss!
I don’t have a picture of it, but I’ve also made an “Italian” tofu stir-fry by cooking the tofu up in red sauce.
Enjoy your favorite variation!
