Tofu Stir-Fry

in All Posts

Good evening!  It’s a wonderful night in Central Florida.  I took the puppies on a long walk, and we enjoyed the sunset.

I spent the day working on my book review.  It was fun work, but I didn’t get as much done as I wanted to.  Tomorrow is another day!

 

I snacked on blue chips and salsa while I worked.   I had a big portion because I was quite hangry from all that biking!

Dinner featured tofu, which I had been CRAVING for days.

To make this delicious stir-fry (for two), I cooked a pack of Nasoya Extra Firm tofu (drained), a bunch of green beans, and corn from two cobs in a wok with some ginger teriyaki.

 

On the side, I had Kashi Pilaf… a nice change from brown rice!

For dessert: strawberries!  Florida strawberries are on sale now.  πŸ™‚

Stay tuned for tomorrow morning!  I’m going to update ya’ll on my ankle situation and what I plan to do about Saturday’s 15K race!

 

In the meantime, are you joining the Fit Blog chat on Twitter tonight at 9 PM?  Hope to see you there!

    That sunset is so gorgeous!!

    How do you get your tofu to look so yummy? Whenever I cook it, it comes out tasteless and icky.. So disappointing!

    • Caitlin April 6, 2010, 8:50 pm

      i just pour sauce on it and fry it up in the wok! no magic trick, although i do think the pre cubed tofu is easier to cook

  • Megan @ Eat.Scrap.Run April 6, 2010, 8:59 pm

    Your meals and all your vegetables always look so good. Lately I have been eating more vegetarian meals thanks to you. It’s nice to get out of the mindset that I have to eat meat every night for dinner. Thanks πŸ™‚

    • Caitlin April 6, 2010, 9:00 pm

      that makes me super happy!

  • Michele April 6, 2010, 9:08 pm

    Your blog actually inspired me to go veggie! (that and the book Skinny Bitch)

    Do you use pre-made teriyaki sauce or do you make your own? I’ve tried a few store brand sauces, and all of them were icky πŸ™

    • Caitlin April 6, 2010, 9:10 pm

      pre made, its a ginger blend. it’s not AMAZING but its good when you want something flavorful fast. It’s by Kikkoman.

      • Michele April 7, 2010, 12:32 am

        OH! I tried that one at a friend’s house. It is good.

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg April 6, 2010, 9:09 pm

    We had a nice sunset walk with our dogs tonight too πŸ™‚ Makes me SO ready for summer!

  • Julie @ Pickley Pear April 6, 2010, 9:11 pm

    Looks like a great evening in Florida! Luckily, I’m not too jealous ’cause it’s been nice in Michigan too – in the 70’s for the past week. I love evening walks, they would be more fun with a dog tho πŸ™‚

  • Heather April 6, 2010, 9:19 pm

    strawberries look yum! sunset is pretty, too!

  • Evan Thomas April 6, 2010, 9:21 pm

    I’m so happy to hear other people can “crave” tofu, too! I swear, people think it’s boring but there are days I just want to bite into some baked tofu like it’s a juicy burger

  • Run Sarah April 6, 2010, 9:22 pm

    That stirfry looks awesome – I totally crave tofu too, SO good πŸ™‚

  • Sarah @ THE FOODIE DIARIES April 6, 2010, 9:36 pm

    im such a challenged individual. could not for the life of me get to the chat

  • Kacy April 6, 2010, 9:37 pm

    I want to live in Florida! So pretty. I’m really leaning towards buying a road bike. You’re selling me on it πŸ™‚

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing April 6, 2010, 10:05 pm

    YUMM!!! That sounds amazingly good! I have been craving tofu too, I haven’t had it in a while. The pre-cubed tofu is the best!! I haven’t ever used tofu in a stir-fry though.

  • Kalli@fitandfortysomething April 6, 2010, 10:13 pm

    What a nice evening! Biking makes me really hangry too πŸ™‚
    I finally got to ride my new bike today. It was great!

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is April 6, 2010, 10:14 pm

    I wish I had that scene to look at everyday. Don’t have that in Pgh. πŸ™‚

  • Gabriela April 6, 2010, 10:20 pm

    YUUUM – I have a real deep craving for tofu right now πŸ˜›
    Hehehe… I need to convince Mom to buy it ASAP!
    Have a great week, Caitlin!

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) April 6, 2010, 10:27 pm

    Thanks for the reminder about the #fitblog chat. It was crazy!

  • Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin April 6, 2010, 10:37 pm

    I’ve been craving a tofu stirfry lately too. Looks delicious. Maybe I’ll make it tomorrow!

  • ashleigh April 6, 2010, 10:48 pm

    You make me want to move to Florida with all of your scenic pictures!

  • katherine April 6, 2010, 11:01 pm

    See, I was all set to make chili tomorrow, but now I want stir fry. Grrr….

  • Mary April 6, 2010, 11:16 pm

    your tofu looks so yummy. you’ve actually inspired me to go veg again. I was a veg for 4 years during college but have recently been eating meat. I just find I feel better without it πŸ™‚

    • Caitlin April 7, 2010, 6:16 am

      wahoo, veg!

  • Jenny April 6, 2010, 11:40 pm

    Strawberries are on sale:) gotta love that 2 for $5 deal!

  • Kelly B (at Local Foodie Fight) April 7, 2010, 12:03 am

    REALLY weird. I bought tofu yesterday and was going to make a stir-fry but realized the only veggie I had was green beans so I decided to hold off until I shopped more. I guess I could have made a stir-fry with just that though!

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) April 7, 2010, 12:49 am

    i can only imagine how fabulous those berries are right now…the color says it all!!! i don’t know if a better dessert has ever existed πŸ™‚

  • Samantha April 7, 2010, 1:40 am

    Damn I want to live in Florida!

  • Diana April 7, 2010, 2:22 am

    That sounds like an awesome stir fry.. I have some tofu I have to use, so that sounds like a good idea πŸ™‚

  • Freya @ Brit Chick Runs April 7, 2010, 3:14 am

    Gah, I don’t have Twitter darn it! Plus 9pm in the US has been and gone already I think….ah well, I hope it was fun!
    Love that stir fry, it looks delicious πŸ™‚

  • Diana (Mymarblerye) April 7, 2010, 7:41 am

    Okay…now I’M craving tofu stirfry!

  • Paige (RAN) April 7, 2010, 7:49 am

    What a beautiful outdoor picture! The stirfry looks delicious!

  • katie @runthislife April 7, 2010, 7:58 am

    That is a beautiful picture! I’ve been reading you for a while, you helped to inspire me through my half-marathon training. But, what I really wanted to say is, I LOVE THAT SALSA! So good and it makes me super jealous because we can’t find it around here. Have a great day!

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday April 7, 2010, 8:16 am

    Wish I knew about the fitblog chat.

  • Heather @ Side of Sneakers April 7, 2010, 8:19 am

    Those strawberries look so good….I LOVE fresh strawberries πŸ™‚

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat April 7, 2010, 8:24 am

    Strawberries are sooo good right now, I didn’t realize how much I’d missed them while they were out of season!

  • devon April 7, 2010, 9:13 am

    I have heard about 30 times today that strawberries are on sale. Talk about publicity!

  • Heather April 7, 2010, 9:40 am

    dear Caitlin-
    Please come over and make me dinner.
    thanks in advance!

    • Caitlin April 7, 2010, 9:59 am

      haha ok πŸ™‚

  • Amber K @ sparkpeople April 7, 2010, 12:41 pm

    I tried to do a tofu stir-fry once, but the tofu fell apart and turned into the texture of cottage cheese. It took forever trying to comb it all out to salvage dinner. I’ve been too scared to try it again since! I’ll have to search for some that is already cubed. Do you still have to drain and press it?

    • Caitlin April 7, 2010, 2:19 pm

      def try precubed. you have to drain but not press.
