Orangey Tofu Stirfry
This recipe fit perfectly into the quick and scrumptious category. We had a charity poker tournament to attend tonight raising money for Play Pumps in Africa. I was so happy that this recipe was sweet and savory from the orange juice because it helped me resist the chocolate cupcakes that were at the tournament to celebrate our friend Kelly's Birthday.
I juiced 3 oranges with my Jack LaLanne Juicer. (Best thing I ever bought from an infomercial!!!) In addition to broccoli and water chestnuts, I added mushrooms. Under the stir-fry is Jasmine Rice.
I didn't follow the directions of the recipe exactly; they seemed a bit drawn out to me. Basically, I sautéed the veggies and tofu in olive oil. Then separately mixed the marinade and poured it over the veggies. I let it all cook for about 10 minutes and it was ready!
As for the poker game, John was the final winner and $800 was raised; all thanks to Kelly and Emily's!
