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.
