I love a good stir fry dish and I can’t believe I don’t post more of them… We do make them all the time… – could not think of a faster tastier meal – but I guess they go down too quick to snap a few photos. This however was too pretty not to share ;) And the Sesame Tempura Tofu totally rocks! (because I just know you were looking for a way to dress up that tofu ~ aren’t we all ;))
One of the easiest ways to EAT LESS WHEAT is to make more Asian meals! The recipes naturally go for lighter rice noodles or rice which really are better for you than heavy wheat pasta dishes. I remember when I first ditched wheat from our menu – those times did have a few challenges, but it was the Asian quick yummy stir fry’s that saved the day! Best of all, dishes like this are so versatile, you can’t really get bored of the same old.
This however, is one of our favourites that we already made a few times. I think it’s the crispy yet tender tofu strips that add a great touch (and protein) to this dish!
And this is how you can get a nice crispy “tempura” style fried tofu that is gluten and egg free!
This dish is very simple and quick to do. Even with the special treatment the tofu gets, it’s all worth it. It doesn’t take much longer… but that crispy batter with the lovely sesame seeds is amazing! You may not believe this dish came together when our fridge was going on empty… really! Luckily that stash of frozen edamame that we always stock up for emergency dinners came out to help. And there’s always some type of rice noodles around… and we always have sesame seeds (that’s a staple of course) and the carrot came in handy… If I could go out shopping… I would just get a little bunch of baby bok choy and green onions to top it off… (that’s IF) best part is you don’t really need it…. but if…. ;)
So if you’re looking for ways to cut that wheat and meat (while you’re at it) from your diet…. going Asian is really naturally delicious! I love going around the whole world for food inspiration… but these flavours just make me happy every time ;)
What are your favourite Asian dishes? (Oh if I may answer that…. Miso!) Do stand by for a great recipe I already have shot a long long time ago…. xo ella
