Tofu and Spinach Stirfry

My kids love paneer. But sometimes I use tofu instead of that and they eat without really noticing it. This stir fry is one of their favorites. I love the crunchiness of the crust and soft tofu inside. It's loaded with protein and minerals. Make it and enjoy the delight on kids face when they devour it.




Prep Time: 10 min| Cooking Time: 15 min| Serves: 5

Ingredients:
Tofu (firm) - 1 block
Spinach (packed) - 3 bowls
Yellow Squash (optional) - 1
Red Wine vinegerette/ Lemon juice - 1 tsp.
Italian Seasoning - 1 tsp.
Minced garlic (I used dehydrated ones) - 1 tsp.
Pepper - 1/2 tsp.
Olive Oil - 2 tbsp.
Salt to taste


 


Method of Preparation:

~ Cut Tofu into small blocks of 1X2 inches. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper.
~ Heat olive oil in a wide pan, shallow fry the tofu. To avoid breaking, leave the tofu untouched for few minutes until a crust forms at the bottom and then flip it over. Take it out on paper towel.
~ Now in the same pan, add garlic and chuncks of squash if using.
~ Add spinach and stir-fry until all the water is absorbed.
~ Add salt, pepper, red wine vinegerette and italian seasoning.
~ Once all are combined, add the tofu and gently mix it all.
