My second video is up on my YouTube channel and this recipe is BOMB, crispy tofu tossed in a sweet and tangy sauce with broccoli and red peppers served with rich, fluffy coconut rice. I love love love this recipe. It’s healthy, it’s super flavorful and it’s delicious, what more could you ask for?
There are also oh so many possible substitutions to fit your needs. You could sub the broccoli and red peppers with your fave veggies as long as they cook relatively fast, for example, mushrooms, zucchini, green beans, etc. If you aren’t vegan, you could use honey instead of maple syrup, and if you want to make it a bit healthier, use brown rice instead of white and add another cup of water. Finallllly, if you’re gluten-free, make sure to use tamari instead of soy sauce.
I also tried a different style with this video. It’s more like the recipe videos that are all over Facebook that don’t have any talking and are much shorter. I would love to get some feedback to find out what people like so if you could tell me which style (the 1st or the 2nd video) you like better in the comments here or on YouTube, that would be super helpful.
Ok, here’s the video!
Again, any feedback is much appreciated and please give the video a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel if you like what you see!
