Food, Gifted

Learning to eat less meat…


Like what I assume is most families in New Zealand, we don’t see ourselves as flexitarians but we are always learning and trying to make healthier choices! We are actively trying to have more meat-free days so when Countdown approached me to see if I wanted to be part of a Health & Wellness Campaign which included a bunch of Vegetarian ingredients, I jumped at the opportunity!

I decided to use the price lockdown Honey Soy Tofu to jazz up a super quick weekend stirfry! It was a hit with the whole fam and this is definitely a product we will be adding to our menu more often. We were all surprised at how much we liked it! Absolutely delish!

Tofu Stir Fry

Ingredients:
– 2 packets of Honey Soy Tofu
-Oil spray
– 2 small heads of broccoli cut into florets
– 2 carrots sliced into half moons
– 2 red onions sliced
– 1 red capsicum sliced
– 1/3 cup sweet chilli sauce
– 1/3 cup soy sauce
– 1 tbsp sesame oil
– 2 cloves garlic crushed
– 2 sprigs basil chopped
– Roasted cashews to garnish
Matui Chilli Honey
– Rice to serve

Method:
– In a small bowl mix together the sauce ingredients (sweet chilli sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil and garlic)
– In a large pan, spray oil spray and fry the tofu 1 minute on each side to give it some colour – pop aside and cover with foil to keep warm.
– Once the tofu is removed, in the same pan, add the broccoli, carrots, red onions and capsicum. Add a small amount of water help the veg steam a little.
– Once the broccoli goes vibrant green add the prepared sauce, give it a good stir and let it cook while you work on the tofu.
– Slice the tofu into pieces or strips (whatever you prefer) then add them to the vegetable mix!
– Serve it up! To serve ours I put the rice on the bottom of a serving platter and topped with the tofu and vegetable mix. Then topped with cashews, basil and drizzled with chilli honey.
– Enjoy!

The finished dish was a hit with the whole fam!

I love that Countdown has made it easier and cheaper to incorporate more plant based ingredients into the diets of NZers! Definitely make the most of the amazing price lockdown on this tofu (and others!) and whip up this dish! If you make it, let me know! It is cheap, quick, easy and bloody tasty!
