Napa Cabbage and Tofu Stir Fry

It is a gorgeous day here today so I’m putting this post up as quick as I can in the hopes that we can go outside when the kids wake up from their naps.  I hear lawn mowers running and I can see a gentle breeze pushing the trees in our front yard to and fro.  Plus, most of the trees are blossoming now, just in time for our annual blossom festival this weekend.  I love this time of year Napa Cabbage and Tofu Stir Fry  I hope you’re having great weather too and if not I hope it gets better for the weekend Napa Cabbage and Tofu Stir Fry

I know it’s been said before but tofu is all in how you prepare it.  It can be nasty stuff but it can be really good too.  I know if my in-laws read this they’ll be laughing(maybe because they remember me feeding my firstborn plain soft tofu from the package – sorry Verne!), but honestly, don’t knock it till you try it done right.  Even my husband enjoys tofu when it’s cooked properly.  For some very helpful tips in making good tofu check out Averie’s Tofu Tips.

I’m not a nutritionist of any kind, but I’ve read a lot about the controversy that soy may not be very good for us and found that there are no definitive answers.  As a result we try to limit our intake of it by not buying processed food which a lot of the time contains soy.  Plus, it’s always good to check ingredients lists for soy because soy allergies and intolerances are fairly common and soy can be found in so many different things.  Of course it’s a personal decision, but we also always buy organic tofu to be 100% sure that it’s not genetically modified or sprayed with round-up and other pesticides.  I also always wait for a sale so that it’s not any more expensive.
