about MM-Green Tofu Stir-Fry with Cauliflower Rice
Packed with protein, fiber, and nutritious veggies, this stir-fry is both filling and satisfying.
Let’s start with the star of the show: tofu. Tofu is an excellent source of plant-based protein, and it’s also low in calories and high in nutrients like iron and calcium. For this recipe, we’re using extra-firm tofu, which holds its shape well during cooking. We’re baking the tofu to give it a crispy and satisfyingly chewy texture.
Now let’s talk about the veggies. This stir-fry features a mix of green veggies, including broccoli and snow peas. Broccoli is an excellent source of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. At the same time, snow peas add a satisfying crunch and are also rich in vitamin C.
We’re swapping out traditional rice for cauliflower rice to make this stir-fry even healthier. Cauliflower rice is a low-carb, low-calorie alternative to rice that’s easy to make at home. Simply pulse cauliflower florets in a food processor until they’re broken down into rice-sized pieces, then sauté them in a pan until they’re tender and slightly browned.
To combine all these ingredients, we’re stir-frying them in a non-stick wok or large skillet with canola cooking spray. The result is a flavorful and colorful dish that’s as delicious as it is nutritious.
