Meatless Night Idea

My friend Tara said she cooks up a delicious batch of tofu stir-fry every week as one of their meatless nights. For some reason I never thought of that so I gave it a whirl on Sunday. Sadly, I forgot it was Super Bowl so while the whole country was enjoying burgers, hot dogs and fries, my carnivorous family was glaring at me between bites of the healthy "meatless night" dinner set before them. (Sorry fam!)

I served the stir fry with brown rice and my husband's sauteed cabbage. It was good, and everyone had seconds, but the recipe wasn't "blog worthy" so I'm not going to bother typing it up. Here's what I put in it though, in case it inspires you to try a version of it for your meatless night... (Tara, I need to get your recipe!)
