Heavy brunch, light dinner

 Tofu stir fry

Went out for brunch today with some friends, and I'd be lying if I said it didn't involve burgers and bacon. We hit the gym this afternoon, but we still wanted a lighter, vegetable-based dinner.

After a quick stop at Whole Foods we made this veggie and tofu stir fry. I sliced up some carrots, summer squash, red pepper, broccolini and maitake mushrooms. Also some ginger and garlic.

In a large bottom pan I sauteed the ginger, scallions, garlic and some soy sauce, then added the peppers, broccoli and mushrooms. After they softened I added the firm tofu squares. After a few minutes I added the carrots, and finally the squash. In the last minute I stirred in another few scallions. I like my veggies al dente, so the cooking took less than 10 minutes.

We ate it over a small helping of brown rice, and it was awesome.
