I love Chinese food but unfortunately the more fast/convenient Chinese food places tend to be high in sodium without fresh vegetables. This recipe is also based off of my mom’s Chinese food recipes. What I love about this dish is that it is hearty, delicious, and affordable! I am all about the sauces and I love this garlic sauce!
Tofu can definitely be intense to prepare but it is an excellent source of lean protein and you can buy extra firm tofu to make the process less laborious. Throw the tofu into your favorite stir-fry or salad.
This recipe emerged from necessity. I was 19, broke, a vegan, and in college. I needed something cheap, quick, healthy, and abundant. This recipe has become a staple of mine and I still eat it throughout the week many times. It has staying power. It’s easy to make and yields a lot of food. I usually like to make this on Sunday night in preparation for the week.
