Delicious and Easy Sweet and Sour Tofu Stir Fry Recipe #BlueDragonCNY

sweet-and-sour-tofu-stir-fry-recipe

I have a confession: I have never used Tofu in my cooking before. It was never appealing to me, nor did I know how to cook it. What changed my mind? I went to a friend’s house and she prepared a delicious vegetables and tofu stir fry recipe. At first, I was skeptical to taste it but I did not want to disappoint my friend. I gave it a try and let me tell you: I was missing out. The stir fry was so good that I asked for another serving! Even my picky teen loved it. He asked me to prepare a similar meal. You know when my picky child asks for a meal, I make it. As simple as that. Give the kids what they ask for (within limits of course).

A few days later, I made this delicious and easy tofu stir fry with one of my favourite sauces: Blue Dragon Sweet And Sour Stir Fry Sauces. What I love about these meals: they are easy to prepare, quick and all the family members enjoy them. What I loved about using tofu is that it is a nice replacement to meat, cost effective and very quick to cook. With the meat prices going through the roof, I am trying to find other protein alternatives that don’t put my food budget into the red.

Sweet and Sour Tofu Stir Fry

Ingredients.

  • 1  tsp of vegetable oil
  • 1 TBSP of minced garlic
  • 1 TBSP of minced ginger
  • 1 tofu package: extra firm. Dice it into small cubes.
  • 1/2 cup of Blue Dragon Sweet and Sour Stir Fry sauce
  • 1 package of frozen vegetables. I went with oriental style (a mix of broccoli, carrots, celery, etc)  You can use fresh vegetables but at this time of the year, they are so expensive. To give you an idea: 1 cauliflower costs almost $9. Frozen vegetables have almost the same nutritional values and they are handy (no chopping, prepping).
  • 2 green onions chopped.

Make it

  • Heat a pan
  • Add vegetable oil, ginger and garlic. Let them cook for one minute until they soften. Make sure to stir regularly.
  • Add Tofu, 1/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup of Blue Dragon Sauce
  • Cook few minutes and set aside.
  • In the same pan, add vegetables and onions, the remaining Blue Dragon Stir Fry sauce and cook for few minutes or until vegetables soften.
  • Add the tofu mixture. Cook for 1 minute while mixing well.
  • Transfer into a nice dish and enjoy. You can serve it with your favorite noodles, rice or quinoa.

  1. I make an awesome vegetarian chili. On another note, I’m really trying hard to master tofu. It is so versatile and so easy to mess up haha. I’ve figured out a couple things but I’m still very much a tofu amateur.

    This looks so delicious and easy to make. I will have to try this for our meatless Wednesday. My favorite vegetarian meal to make is chili.

  3. Stir fry is one of my favorite dishes. It’s so good with many different veggies. I love it! Your recipe looks delicious too!

  4. I have cooked with tofu a couple of times before when I was feeling brave. It turned out okay, but not great. I would be willing to try it again. I just need the right recipe like this one!

  5. I have definitely made stir fry dishes before but none with Tofu. The only time I ever remember tasting anything with Tofu in it, was when I ordered a Miso Soup at a Restaurant and they put a few chunks of Tofu in it. I have never tried personally adding it to any of my dishes though so thanks for sharing the recipe!

    That looks really good! I have never tried tofu myself either. I’m glad you like it, it makes me want to try it too.

  7. This looks so eady, I think I’ll give it a try. I will be passing the recipe to a friend though. She’s a vegetarian and loves tofu, I think she’ll love this.

  8. I love tofu, it’s one of my favorite ingredients. It’s healthy and it absorbs flavor really well. Thanks for this awesome recipe!
