Let’s be honest, sometimes you just can’t be bothered to cook. Getting take out can evolve into a habit with costs you a lot of money. Personally, take out often leave me unsatisfied and a bit underwhelmed with the flavours. The good thing is is that stir fry’s are super easy and quick to make and only requires minimal ingredients. This bowl if filled with brown rice and topped with mixed veggies and smoked tofu, all fried in a delicious sauce. I bet you have all the ingredients at home already!
