Spicy Tofu Stir-Fry

I have been wanting to do a stir-fry for FOREVER. But, alas, Chris was adamant that he hates them. I finally decided I wanted to make one so bad that I put it on the weekly menu, told him it wasn't your average stir-fry, and he would like it. Sure enough, he liked it. I loved it. The best part, from start to finish it took less than 3o minutes! Including chopping all the veggies :)

Spicy Tofu Stir-Fry
What You Need:

  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 cup cut cauliflower 
  • 1 cup cut broccoli
  • 1 package firm/extra firm tofu, diced
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
The Process:
  1. Heat the wok/pan until very hot. Add the cumin and coriander, and dry-fry the spices for a minute. Add the oil with the garlic, ginger, and chilli powder. Stir-fry briefly. Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the cauliflower and broccoli, and stir-fry until they are cooked through but still crisp. Add the tofu and lemon juice and toss well until it is coated with the spices. Serve hot.


  1. That looks SO good! If you have any cashews left, they're really nice chopped up & added to a stir-fry.

  2. Good idea! I thought about adding the sunflower seeds I have but I wasn't feeling that adventurous.
