Stir Fry Garlic Tofu
Someone took me to Costco for the first time in my life, and I was able to buy a 4-pack of tofu for like $5. That place was pretty overwhelming! I had no idea Costco was so popular, but I can kind of see why now. The only thing that might deter me from going there again is the massive amounts of other shoppers.
I ended up getting a whole bunch of veg from a smaller grocery store; a whole mess of carrots, a head of broccoli, a head of cabbage, bell pepper, mushrooms, an onion, and a cucumber. All that cost me a little under $8.
For this stir fry, I used:
- 1 block of tofu (firm)
- 1/3 head of cabbage
-1/3 red onion
-½ head of broccoli
-½ bell pepper
-3 cloves of garlic
First I drained the tofu and cut it into little triangles, then I fried it. Next I sauteed some carrots and onions until they started to caramelize a bit, then I added the broccoli and fresh grated garlic cloves. Then, after the broccoli started to get a tiny bit soft, I added the cabbage, bell pepper, soy sauce, sriracha, and garlic powder. Stir all that up until it’s hot and steamy, and then serve on a bed of rice!
All together, including the rice, this meal cost about $4 and yielded about 5 generous servings. That’s about 80 cents per serving!
