Tofu Vegetable Stir Fry over Red Quinoa

Today was back to reality, but I had a fantastic day at work, and the hard work I have put in there has definitely paid off. 😀  I am super confident that 2011 is going to be a great year! 

I don’t really have set “New Year’s Resolutions”, but I definitely want to eat a bit better in 2011.  To kick off our work week right, I made Tofu Vegetable Stir Fry over Red Quinoa for dinner.

Tofu Vegetable Stir Fry over Red Quinoa

Ingredients:

  • 1 16 oz. package of extra firm tofu, cut into cubes
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 3-4 carrots, matchstick cut
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 cup frozen edamame
  • 1 tbsp. of peanut oil or other type of oil
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch dissolved in 1 tbsp. of water
  • 1 cup of red quinoa (uncooked)
  1. Put 1 cup of red quinoa and 2 cups of water or broth in a pan.  Bring to a boil then simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed.
  2. Heat oil in stir fry pan at medium high heat.  Add tofu and cook until golden.  When done put aside on a paper towel.
  3. Add onions, garlic, and ginger to the same pan.  When onions start to brown add peppers, edamame, and carrots.
  4. In a small sauce pan add 1/2 cup water, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and honey and bring to a simmer.  Add corn starch mixture and simmer until sauce thickens.
  5. Pour over tofu and vegetables.  Serve immediately over red quinoa.

This super healthy meal even got rave reviews with the husband!  Great start to the week!  I hope everyone else had a good Monday!
