It takes about 10 minutes to make this meal and without much effort. You’ll need 5 minutes to peel and chop some of the ingredients, but you can also prepare the vegetables the night before, such that when it’s time to prepare meal, you can just add everything in a wok and have your meal ready in ten minutes without additional cooking. Yes it’s that simple!

By the way, in case you didn’t know; Tofu, also known as bean curd, is a food made by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into soft white blocks like the ones you see on the picture below:

The meal is tasty even when you don’t use mushrooms, or when you put chicken instead of tofu. Everything consisted in this meal is healthy and you should practice eating it often, especially because of the health benefits of tofu, which is naturally gluten-free, provides you with calcium,  protein and iron, while broccoli detoxifies-just about everything you need in a meal in one serving!
