So we have some staple meals in our house – and this is one of them. It’s such an easy meal to make and sometimes I switch it up a bit (like everything else I make!).

  • 2-3 tbs of stir fry oil 
  • 1 block of extra firm tofu (I get mine pre-cubed!)
  • 1 bag of mixed stir fry fresh veggies (this saves considerable chopping time!)
  • 1/2 an onion, large slices
  • 1 tbs garlic
  • red pepper flakes (to season)
  • Szechuan stir fry sauce (to season)
  • red pepper chilis (to season)
  • 1 package Asian rice noodles (including the spice packet included!)

– Heat about 2 tbs stir fry oil in wok.
– Add cubed tofu & heat until slightly tanned on medium high heat.
– Add onion & red pepper flakes. Heat until onions are transluscent.
– Add veggies & rice noodles & stir.  (you may want to add 1/4 cup water). Heat until veggies are tender (but not mushy!) and rice noodles are soft.
– Add stir fry sauce & mix well.
– Serve with brown rice & jasmine tea!

The great thing about this is how easy it is to change it a bit. We like to use peanut sauce or just regular stir fry sauce. There are loads of different sauces at the grocery and it’s fun to try all the different ones.

    Can I replace the tofu with beef or chicken?

    Now why would you want to ruin a perfectly good meal?! But I suppose if you picky eaters have to add animal to your food, you could…

    oooohhhhhh!! i suppose i could try tofu….don’t know if anyone would eat it though! is this spicy? might be something that abija would really like…she misses her spicy foods from home!

  4. mrmrsbsh Says:

    You can make it as spicy (or not) as you’d like. Just adjust the peppers accordingly. Tonight ours was especially hot! YUMMM!

    Oh – you could also do pork or shrimp, too.
