Shaved Brussel Sprout Stir fry With Garlicky Tofu

Updated: Apr 4

Hi Everyone!


So, before I get into the recipe, I just want to confess something to you that will learn about me as you read more of my recipes and see more of the pictures. I have an unhealthy obsession with Uncle Ben’s Basmati Ready Rice. I have at least seven bags on hand at all times and anytime I go to the supermarket I always pick up at least three more bags, “just in case”. Also, every time I cook something that requires rice, I use this specific rice. It doesn’t matter what the cuisine is it’s always the Uncle Ben’s Basmati for me. As a single girl living in an apartment, it is the best and most versatile food in my pantry. It makes just enough for a meal plus lunch the next day, because yes sometimes my dinner consists of just rice with butter, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and parsley, and if I’m adding it into a dish like a stir-fry it really goes a long way! So, long story short, you will be seeing a lot of this in my recipes moving forward. Obviously you don’t have to use this rice, you can switch it out for any kind of rice, as you’ll see I don’t ever give a specific brand of rice I’ll just add the amount you need but, secret tip, this one’s the best!

Ok, now that I got that out of system, this dish is one of my go to week night meals, it’s quick, easy, and so yummy and also heats up so well the next day for lunch! This stir-fry also is so versatile with the kinds of vegetables you add to it and it really allows you to use your creativity to really make it yours. In my version, the brussel sprouts and garlicky tofu are the star but with the other vegetables in the dish I kept it simple with just corn and peas, but you can go as crazy as you want and add in anything your heart desires!


So, with all that being said, I will leave you with the recipe and this last thought, go get the Uncle Ben’s Basmati Rice, you know you want to! 😊
