Is there anything more satisfying than taking a meaty recipe and making it vegetarian? Okay, yes, there are probably a lot of things more satisfying than that. (Winning the lottery? Definitely more satisfying.) But I still love that feeling of victory I get when I take something I can’t eat and make it into something tasty and meatless. So when Better Homes & Gardens asked me to do a guest post for their Delish Dish blog, I decided to do just that–I’d take their Mango-Chili Chicken Stir-Fry recipe and make it with tofu. Yes, tofu!
So many people think they don’t like tofu because they haven’t had tofu that’s been prepared the right way. But if you press it for at least 30 minutes (I show you how to do it without a fancy press in this post!) and cook it in a little bit of oil, it’s crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and delicious when paired with a flavorful sauce.
Serve this sweet and spicy stir fry over brown rice with a fresh salad on the side and you have yourself a quick, easy dinner. Stop by the Delish Dish blog for my full post and a link to the original recipe!
