My dad taught me how to do a lot of things, but the most useful were how to throw a baseball, program Excel spreadsheets and cook stir fry. A vegetable tofu stir fry is one of the easiest and simplest dishes I cook. Chop up the veggies, prepare your sauce, bust out the wok, and go. It’s easy. The technique of stir fry is simple, throw it in, cook it fast, and don’t think too much. Really the hardest part is the prep. Once the game starts, it’s all instinct and how high you can flip all the veggies out of the wok without spilling them everywhere.
