Szechuan Crispy Tofu and Vegetable Stir Fry

Fast and simple dinners are my go-to recipes because, by the time the day winds down, I never have the time to cook up anything too fancy. This Szechuan Crispy Tofu and Vegetable Stir Fry is quick, easy to make, and tastes amazing! This recipe serves 4 people, and it is sure to impress.

To make this stir fry you first place the tofu between two layers of paper towels and place something heavy on top to drain out the moisture. Then toss the cubed tofu and cornstarch together in a mixing bowl. Then in a skillet you add all the tofu in a cook until brown. Once the tofu is cooked you set it aside and add all the veggies in the skillet to cook. Then you add the tofu back in with the San-J Szechuan Sause until heated.

Once the stir fry is done you serve over rice. I like to top mine with sesame seeds and green onions. Give this recipe a try.
