Tofu, Broccoli and Shiitake Stir-Fry

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

Here is a quick an easy side or main for you to whip up in next to no time. This tofu, broccoli and shiitake stir fry is one of my favourite side dishes to make to go along with any Oriental main meal we’re having, like Sichuan Chicken, Saliva Chicken (no actual saliva involved!) and for a totally vegetarian affair, the Vegan Vietnamese Tofu and Eggplant recipe.

No rocket science involved today, straight up fresh ingredients, with minimal fat. And if you are on a low carb diet, you can absolutely have this as lunch, just on its own. This is a very simple dish, relying on the garlic and ginger for its flavouring. You could also finish off with a light drizzle of sesame oil for more flavour.

You’ll see from the recipe that I’m not being too specific with the ingredients, it’s a very easy recipe to cook and change accordingly. So if you don’t have or don’t like tofu, don’t fret, leave it out and just use the shiitake (or other mushrooms), the broccoli and/or any other stir fry friendly vegetables you fancy, like sugarsnaps, carrots, beansprouts, etc.

What to serve it with? Here are some examples:

Or you can always head on over to the World Cuisine page for ideas.

Now, shall we get our aprons on?

  1. Hi Lin, this is great. I hope you bring it over to Food on Friday as part of Pot Luck. Each month there are now 3 different themes plus a Potluck – so you should always be able to share something. If you would like to join in the fun on a regular basis please schedule a reminder for the second Friday of each month (NZ time). Cheers from Carole’s Chatter
