Crispy Tofu Stir Fry

Crispy Tofu Stir Fry

Light and super quick, this stir fry of crunchy tender-stem broccoli, asparagus, baby corn, pak choi, and pan-fried crisp and golden tofu was so perfect for a mid-week dinner.   Thrown together in a matter of minutes, it’s so easy to make, and you can change the vegetables to whatever you have in your fridge.  

I could happily devour this whole bowl full of some steaming hot jasmine rice or noodles and lashings of chili sauce!
