Sticky Tofu Stir-Fry

This stir-fry is really simple, yet so nourishing and delicious! We love tofu, and the sticky tofu from this recipe is one of our favourite ways to make tofu. This dish is full of protein and carbohydrates, so is a great meal post workout, or just as a dish to keep you going during the week.

We fry our vegetables just in sesame oil, but you can add soy sauce if you wish. We find the sauce from the tofu is enough. Obviously you can add or remove vegetables as well, we sometimes do this with broccoli and spring onions as well. 🙂

Ingredients Serves 6
Cooking time: 40 mins

  • 2 cups of rice (or enough for 6 people, depending on how much rice you typically eat)

  • 1 red onion
  • 150 g edamame beans

  3. Drain the edamame beans and squeeze the beans out from the pods.

  5. Fry the carrots and cabbage in some sesame oil until soft. (Once soft, put to one side.)
