Broccoli, Cashews, Tofu... and More

Anyone feeling overstuffed after Thanksgiving?!! Bloated... tired of rich, heavy foods?

Even for those of us that didn't celebrate Thanksgiving last week, there are evenings when you feel like having plenty of veggies and a 'clean', whole-foods meal. This time of year salads aren't always the most appealing. The cold raw foods do not always feel good at a time of year when our bodies are craving warming, denser foods.

This Broccoli Cashew Teriyaki Tofu Stir-Fry recipe from ed&bv might be a mouthful of a recipe name, but fills the bill just perfectly! Broccoli, red bell peppers, tofu, and cashews are heated in a homemade teriyaki sauce. In this photo, you see I've also added fresh green beans and zucchini. The recipe is flexible, so you can add other vegetables you really like. My favorites are the broccoli, red (or yellow or orange) peppers, and green beans, so I use these regularly (though pls note the recipe doesn't call for green beans). The teriyaki sauce can be made in about 5 minutes, tossing all the ingredients in a cup and whizzing with an immersion blender. It tastes fresh, flavorful, and satisfying! Serve the lot over brown rice, or tossed with soba noodles.

So, if you're needing an energizing, nutritious meal that will still warm your bones... turn to page 122 of ed&bv and get cooking!

this is one of my favorite recipes from ed&bv! my boyfriend and i made it a few weeks ago and declared it that best chinese food we'd had since we'd been to nyc the previous january. the homemade teriyaki sauce is wonderful!

This is one of my most commonly made recipe from ED&BV- so simple and awesome! I will definitely keep in mind the addition of green beans next time I make this.

Are you reading my mind?! "Tired of rich, heavy foods" = right on! I think a lot of us need to get back on track, so thanks for the recipe suggestion. :) Your cookbook is the bestest.

All of your recipes rock and roll, but I must admit, I haven't tried this one yet. Since I am the world's biggest broccoli freak, I don't know what I'm waiting for.

This is such a yummy recipe! I've made it so many types, with lots of different types of veggies.
And the sauce is FABULOUS! I never realized how simple it was to make teriyaki sauce!

Hi Dreena,

I just put my fork and bowl down from eating this. It is soooo good!! I have never had tastier tofu. I'm very new to vegan eating, and am just so happy to have your recipes. We also made the Moroccan Vegetable Phyllo Rolls as well. Scrumptious. :-)

Thank you!!!

Thanks everyone! The green beans are a great addition - particularly if you cook them until *just* before they get tender - still with some crunch. Very good! Not sure why I didn't think about them as an ingredient in the original recipe!

Allularpunk, I had to click through to that photo - thought at first that you were about to bite into the biggest choc chip cookie!! Pretty big squash all the same!

Tracey, I'm so glad to hear that you liked this recipe (WITH the tofu) as a new vegan. Sometimes, tofu is the least interesting new food for vegans! Keep up the vegan cooking, and let me know if you need anything. :)
