Simple Vegan Stir Fry in a Cast Iron Skillet

A Quick and Easy Stir Fry

Here’s a healthy Asian-influenced recipe that’s super simple to make in either a wok or a skillet. I prefer a skillet since I’ve recently bought a brand new one.

There are a couple of preparatory steps to take when making this stir fry recipe.

  • You will need to steam the broccoli for about 4-5 minutes.
  • You can marinate the tofu cubes in soy sauce, garlic and a little brown sugar. A good start would be a couple of tablespoons of soy sauce, a clove of minced garlic and a teaspoon of brown sugar.

Serve this stir fry with a cup of steamed rice and you’re good to go!


Servings: 4
Total Time: Less than 30 minutes.



  • 1/2 Block of Tofu, Cubed (extra firm)
  • 1 Crown of Broccoli Florets (steam separately 4 minutes)
  • 3 Small Carrots, cut into rectangular pieces
  • 1 Cup Mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp Canola Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce



  • Heat up a large skillet, medium heat. Add the Canola Oil.
  • Add minced garlic and stir for a minute.
  • Add the carrots then saute for a few minutes.
  • Then add the tofu and saute for a few more minutes.
  • Next, add the steamed broccoli and mushrooms.
  • Stir Fry until all ingredients are cooked yet still retain their crunchiness.
  • Sprinkle the soy sauce and saute a few more minutes.
