Veggie Stir Fry
Stir Fry is the best vegan meal I make: delicious, filling, and extremely healthy.
The two items we always include are broccoli and tofu. This meal also features string beans, carrots, red bell pepper, and onion. Washing and cutting the vegetables is the longest and most tedious part of the process; after that, it's very easy. Toss all the cut vegetables into a wok. Cut tofu and add seasoning (teriyaki works well). After that it is obvious: stir and fry. Heat it and stir it for as long as you like. We usually serve the stir fry over brown rice; for a lighter meal the rice can be skipped.
This meal is also very affordable: I'd estimate a large serving for two people costs between five and ten dollars, depending on the ingredients you choose. If you have kids and they like vegetables, it ends up being a wonderful family meal.
