Teriyaki tofu stir fry
If you want to cram loads of vegetables into one meal, this is the recipe to do just that. A very popular stir fry in my house which includes a wide variety of vegetables. Ideally it's made in a wok so you can quickly and evenly fry all the veg, but a large frying pan can work too.
I used a packet of ready to go teriyaki tofu purchased from a local health food store but you can you any firm tofu instead. You can use any variety of vegetables you like so don't feel you need everything listed below.
It saves a lot of time if you get all the vegetables prepared before you start cooking as you will be continually adding more veg to the wok according to the length of time they take to cook. Make sure you keep regularly stirring the veg so they don't burn and to help them cook evenly.
Serve as it is or on noodles or rice.
