Tofu broccoli stir-fry with peanut sauce

stir-fry with peanut sauce

A stir-fry is a perfect dish if you come home late from uni or work and don’t really feel like cooking, but don’t want to stuff yourself with unhealthy take-out either. It only takes about 15 minutes to prepare, and you can use whatever vegetables you have in your fridge. If you know you’re gonna be late one day, you can even cut up the vegetables in the morning, so all you have to do later is to heat your pan or wok and add your veggies of choice. Broccoli and tofu are by far my favourite stir-fry combination, but feel free to use any other vegetables you like! To make this dish even more yummy, I added a simple yet delicious peanut sauce.

The flavour of the sweet potatoes blends perfectly with the peanuts and gives this soup a very nice rich, creamy taste. It is also a perfect base to experiment with different flavour combinations, so go ahead and experiment with various spices (how about some garam masala?) to make this soup just a little more perfect for you – have a go at it!

Fried vegetables in peanut sauce with rice

vegetables in peanut sauce

This dish was inspired by the Asian cuisine, but the actual reason that lead to it’s development was the fact that I had bought a way to big jar of peanut butter. Sometimes I just forget the ‘Never go grocery shopping when you are hungry’ rule, and things like this are the result of it… But otherwise, who knows if I had ever created this dish? So I guess there’s worse than getting a little shopping druggy ;-). Continue reading
