Recipes Tips

If you're new to cooking with tofu, be sure to press it to remove excess water before cooking. This will help it crisp up and absorb more flavor. You can also marinate the tofu in soy sauce or other seasonings for extra flavor.

When stir-frying vegetables, be sure to cut them into small, bite-sized pieces so they cook evenly. You can also add other vegetables like broccoli, snow peas, or carrots to add more color and nutrition to the dish.

If you want to make this recipe spicier, you can add red pepper flakes or sriracha sauce to the sauce mixture. Adjust the amount to your taste preferences.
