Chinese Buddha Delight

Chinese Buddha Delight

The chinese lunar new year is a festival time for chinese people all over the world.

I’m always looking for more ideas to incorporate protein into my family’s diet especially when it comes to creating a balanced diet for my kids.

Buddha’s delight is a stir fry vegetable and tofu that’s coated in savory homemade sauce which I tried to make it more healthier and add more protein in it.

This recipe for buddha’s delight is a classic Chinese dish full of mixed vegetables and tofu in a savory homemade sauce.

Ingredients:

  1. ½ Tbsp of Organic Shiitake Mushroom Powder
  2. ½ Tsp of Organic Onion Powder
  3. ¼ Tsp of Organic Garlic Powder

  14. 2 Tbsp of Organic Cashews (Optional: roasted with oil, salt and pepper)


Direction:

  1. In a bowl, make stir-fried sauce by adding Ingredients #1-11 together and mix well. (Measurement of each ingredient can be adjusted per your desired taste).

  4. Return the tofu back to the wok, season the vegetables and tofu with the sauce mixture, mix well for 30 seconds, and remove onto a serving plate.
