The Ultimate Veggie Stir Fry Recipe

I encourage you to have fun with this recipe and replace any vegetable with your favorites! I love adding “fried” tofu with these recipe to give it a nice “crunchy” texture, and it helps make the dish more filling for anyone with a bigger appetite. For my “fried” tofu, I just heat up around 1 cup of oil to a pot over medium high heat for a few minutes. Typically, I press the water out of my tofu by lining it with a tea towel and gently placing a book onto for 20-30 minutes. Then, place your sliced tofu (~1″ cubes) into the heated up olive oil and fry for 4-5 minutes, or until crispy brown.
