Tofu and Edamame Stir Fry

I randomly concocted this recipe as I was perusing through Trader Joes.

Tofu? Check! Leeks? Never cooked with them before, but check! Broccolini? Check! Edamame? Check!

This is a great meal for anyone following a vegan or vegetarian diet, or someone like me who eats meat, but likes to swap it for tofu, beans or veggies around 3 times a week.

All you need to do is throw everything into a saucepan and you’ll have a healthy meal, all under 20 minutes!


2 tbs peanut oil

1 tbs rice wine vinegar

fresh ginger (optional)

1 medium sized leek, just the white part.

1 package of extra firm Trader Joes teriyaki tofu

I package of cooked edamame

1/2 cup broccoli florets, or 5 broccolini sprigs

Step 1: Heat 2 tbs peanut oil in a saucepan over medium to high heat.

Step 2: Cut the leeks in half, rinse thoroughy and finely chop.

Step 3: Throw the broccoli into the sauce pan, add in the leeks and edamame. Sautee for 3-4 mintutes, turning down heat if leeks start to burn.

Step 4: Cut the tofu into slices and toss in with other ingredients. Add in the rice wine vinegar, salt and pepper, to taste (I use 1 tsp each)

Step 5: Add in the ginger and cook until the tofu turns brown.

I usually serve this on a bed of butter lettuce.





One thought on “Tofu and Edamame Stir Fry

  1. I really like the idea of serving this on a bed of butter lettuce – a nice alternative to rice or other grains. The edamame and white rice vinegar are also new twists for me. Nice
