There is no secret that l love Asian cuisine. My recipes may not be authentic, but they rather have an Asian touch. And how scrumptious they are!

Chicken and broccoli stir fry with rice and Mushroom pepper stir fry with rice are just two of my favourite, and you can tell l also like rice. And quite a lot!!! It’s  just so easy to cook and fuss free.

Tofu is super healthy

After all those heavy dishes and Easter chocolates, a nice stir fry sounds just like a fantastic idea to me.

Tofu is a staple ingredient in Asian cookery and has many proven healthy benefits, being an excellent source of protein, calcium and iron, and lots other vitamins and minerals.

It is really versatile, and can be cooked in endless ways, having a subtle flavour and silky texture. If you are vegan or vegetarian, tofu is a great ingredient to cook with.

But even meat eaters would agree that it is a great alternative to meat. I, for one, love it, especially in stir fries.

How do you make tofu broccoli stir fry?

I used marinated tofu pieces, so all I had to do was throw them in when the other ingredients were ready.

But if you buy a block of tofu, just dice it up and add it gently to the pan, so that the pieces don’t break and keep their shape.

One thing that never misses from my kitchen is soy sauce, l love adding it to lots of dishes, it brings flavour to even the most boring food.

The light soy sauce is sharp and salty, while the dark sauce brings colour. They are best used together, but if you have only regular soy sauce, just use that one.

To make the dish:

  • heat up the oil, add the ginger, garlic and spring onions and fry for about 30 seconds until fragrant
  • add the mushrooms, spinach and broccoli florests, together with the soy sauces and sesame oil and stir fry on a high heat until tender
  • add the tofu, toss everything together, and remove from the heat
