Here is a really quick, low effort meal I made the other day that turned out delicious.
First, I cut up some tofu. I cut mine into cubes, but you could also scramble it or cut it up any other way you’d like. Then I sprayed a pan with a little bit of oil and cooked the tofu on medium high heat until all of the sides were golden brown. I did turn the heat down to medium about 3/4 of the way through cooking to prevent them from burning, so definitely keep and eye on them (I do that when I cook tofu scramble too to cook most of the water out). While they were cooking I added in:
- black pepper
- garlic powder
- cayenne pepper
After the tofu cubes were done cooking I dumped them onto a plate and cooked a bunch of veggies in the same pan. We had an assortment of frozen veggies so I used peppers (red, green, and yellow), onion, broccoli, carrots, mushrooms and spinach.
I put everything into a bowl and added some sriracha on top. Some extras I’d recommend adding in: rice, beans, or quinoa. I also added sriracha to mine, but a peanut sauce or soy sauce would also be delicious!
I know this was a simple recipe, but everything turned out so well, plus I find that eating a TON of veggies and keeping my meals simple helps with my arthritis. I’ve also noticed that eating a lower carb diet helps with my inflammation personally.
