Remember the blog about healthy eating?......yeah....me neither...MOVING ON
So tonight I am home, in my own house (can you believe it?)....trying to decide what to make for dinner, and
Kaiti goes, "what about rice?" "RICE?" I said......"Just rice?" "Yep", says Kaiti...
"Yeah,ummm no, we need a little something extra in there kiddo" and off the the kitchen I dragged.....
Thankfully, I am always well stocked on veggies and I just bought a 5 lb. bag of organic carrots, for only $4.55. Yes, that is right, $4.55
Kaiti was hopping around me like a bed bug and going "what about broccoli...can we have broccoli....I love broccoli....can we, can we, can we!!!!" So a stir fry was born....
5 large organic carrots, peeled and cut into 3 inch long strips
3 cups of broccoli crowns (feel free to use frozen or fresh, and use the whole stalk if you like)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 large yellow onion, cut in half and then sliced thinly
1/2 pkg. Extra firm tofu, pressed and sliced thinly
1 tbls. sriracha hot sauce
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4-1/2 cup soy sauce or to taste
Slice all veggies and set aside. Heat your skillet over high heat with about 4 tablespoons olive oil until oil shimmers, add tofu slices and fry until brown. remove and drain well. Add onions and carrots, and stir, add sriracha sauce and make sure to coat the veggies well. Add the broccoli, spices, and soy sauce stir to combine. Cover with a lid for about 3 minutes.Top with reserved tofu and serve over Jasmine rice!!This is so easy it took me all of 1o minutes to throw it together! Ha Ha take that Rachel Ray, In your face!!!! (just kidding...no, I am not....)
