5 Minute Microwave “Stirfry” Recipe

Sometimes you want a tofu and veggie stir-fry but you don’t want to deal with dirtying a pan… or maybe you’re a college/university student who only has access to a microwave to cook! Well, here’s a solution…

Microwave tofu and veggie “stir-fry”!! It’s definitely not as delicious as regular stir-fry that’s made with some TLC, but this is quick and easy – perfect for a busy student or working professional.

Essentially, all you’re doing is putting ingredients into a microwave-safe container and microwaving it for a few minutes. Simple enough? I would say so.
