MEXICAN INSPIRED STIR FRY 🇲🇽
Yay! My last semester is sort of over, with just an essay left to write and a few appointments regarding my upcoming master thesis – need to figure out a final topic that really interests me…🤓🤨
Due to the stressful last weeks I ate a lot of easy one pan meals and this was one of them. A Mexican version of stir fry with good old beans, corn and rice and lots of PLANT PROTEIN 🥰
[CALS 552 ~ 78C ~ 32P ~ 10F]
80g Rice (or Quinoa)
100g Tofu (or Vegan Mince)

80g Sweet Corn

1️⃣ Cook rice according to package (ratio 1:2). Steam the green beans. Chop all remaining veggies and scramble the tofu.
2️⃣ Add a splash of water to a pan on medium heat and add bell pepper, carrot, steamed green beans and tofu – let simmer and fry once water is gone. Season well.
3️⃣ Stir while adding rice, then corn, black beans and garlic. Mix tomato paste with a bit of water and add it to the pan.
4️⃣ Lower the heat, season to taste & stir until all flavors are well combined. Garnish your stir fry with chopped scallions and enjoy! 🤘🏼
