Healthy Vegan Asian Stir Fry Recipe

Vegan Asian Stir Fry

This healthy, (vegan) Asian stir fry recipe is one of my favorite go-to recipes that I make every now and then! This time I got all my ingredients at Trader Joe's for a very reasonable price if you are on a budget.

The recipe can be made quickly and while you are getting other things done around the house, so it's perfect if you are a stay at home mom! I have to let you all know that this is not based off of a 21 Day Fix meal plan, however it can be portioned accordingly using your seven color coded portion control containers.

How to Make Vegan Asian Stir Fry

What you need:

- 2 Packages Extra Firm Cubed Tofu (this cooks the best in my opinion)
- Fresh Rice Noodles
- Pre-cut Asian Stir fry vegetables
- Soyaki Sauce- 40 calories in one TB, I use about 2. This sauce is vegan, and super flavorful!
- Crushed/Minced Garlic
- Bok Choy

How to make:

Cooking Rice Noodles

I start by draining my tofu, because this takes the longest. While my tofu is draining, I begin cooking my rice noodles. Rice noodles take only about two minutes to cook by following the package directions. When the rice noodles are done, I drain them, and pour cold Brita water on top of them. Let the rice noodles sit while cooking the rest of your stir fry.

I love using the precut veggies--no prep time! :)

Next, heat up a frying pan with a TB of olive oil. Add your pre-cut vegetables to this pan and cook thoroughly. Season with cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and minced garlic while cooking.

how to properly cook tofu

While the vegetables are cooking, I add my tofu to a separate frying pan with heated olive oil. Cook these until brown on all sides. 

Cooking Bok Choi

While the tofu is cooking, chop your bok choy. When tofu is done cooking, add it on top of the tofu. It welts really fast, so you want to add this is in right before you combine everything together.

Vegan Stir Fry

In a large wok, or pan, combine vegetables and cooked tofu. Drain rice noodles and add two TB of soyaki sauce. Add rice noodles to your vegetables and tofu using tongs if available because the noodles can be sticky.

This recipe should make at least four servings, so it is great for meal prep! It is so flavorful, you won't even realize that it is totally vegan ;)
