Tuesday Takehome + Tofu Stir-fry recipe

Another beautiful CSA share pick-up at the Farmers' Market! 
This week we got:

Swiss Chard
Beet Greens
Lettuce mix 
a bunch of Basil
a bunch of Spearmint
a bunch of Sage
Green onions
Snap Peas and Snow Peas

Lots of greatness! I decided to make an awesome tofu stir-fry that could incorporate some of the veggies from my share. Here's the recipe, if you'd like to make it yourself!

Tofu Stir-Fry with Ginger and Peppers
1 pkg Extra-Firm Tofu
1 cup frozen or fresh peppers
3 shitake mushrooms, diced
1 handful of spinach, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 green onions, chopped
4 tbps olive oil

Marinade ingredients:
1/3 cup Soy sauce
2 tsp Ginger, chopped
1 cup water


  • Prepare the tofu by pressing it to rid it of excess water
  • Slice the tofu into thin slab or small pieces
  • Mix together together the marinade and let the tofu soak in it for 20-30 minutes
  • Heat up a frying pan with the olive oil 
  • Once the oil is heated, add the garlic and let it cook for a few minutes. 
  • Add the tofu once its ready, add to the pan. 
  • Fry up the tofu on both sides, and then add the remaining vegetables.

Serve and Enjoy!
