Food for Fuel: Stir-Fried Tofu with Bell Peppers

January 23, 2009 at 3:40 pm | Posted in Food, Nutrition, Pasta, Tofu, Vegetarian Entrees | 4 Comments

I wasn’t going to share last night’s dinner because it looks like so many of my other soba noodle creations and because it’s from a cookbook and I can’t post the recipe. However, I did a google and found it online: Mark Bittman’s Stir-Fried Tofu with Bell Peppers or Other Vegetables. Apparently Bittman included the recipe in more than one cookbook–the one I used is How to Cook Everything. I guess that’s proof that this is a good recipe.

I added shiitake mushrooms and a frozen Asian blend of veggies. I used leftover baked tofu from last week, so this was a nice, quick meal.

Served over the last of my Annie Chun’s soba noodles.


There are a lot of vegetables in that bowl. This recipe is not spicy, so it’s a good choice if you don’t like spicy Asian flavors.

  1. really, i think you’re reading my mind. i was just looking through how to cook everything vegetarian for something different for the cauliflower in my fridge… and came upon a tofu stirfry. 🙂

  2. I’ve never had tofu stir fry but I have two blocks of tofu in my fridge so now you’ve given me a great idea! Looks delicious 🙂
