Signs of Spring are all around, and I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t be more thrilled! Spring is a time of new life and new beginnings. It’s a time to refresh, renew, and simplify. In the kitchen, for me, this translates to an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables and lots of quick and easy ways to cook them.
Most days, this means whipping up a quick vegetable stir fry. The boyfriend’s dad recently told me about this stir fry of Chinese chives and firm tofu… and it’s so good that I just had to pass it on!
It’s just about the simplest stir fry there is to make. You start by pan frying some thin pieces of firm tofu. Once they’re golden brown, you turn the heat up to high and add the cut Chinese chives. Stir fry for a minute or two until they become bright green in color and then season with thin soy sauce and white ground pepper.
That’s it. That’s all there is to it. The result is simple, fresh, and delicious. Talk about a perfect Spring-time meal!
