Low-FODMAP Red Cabbage Stir-Fry with Tofu

Low-FODMAP Red Cabbage Stir-Fry with Tofu  /  Delicious as it Looks

While it seems like everyone and their dog is dieting and eliminating foods right now, I'm doing the opposite. I'm adding food into my life and it's delicious. Red cabbage is a food I'd never eaten much of before. I think the only time I ate red cabbage was when it was included in a bagged salad mix. I've been experimenting with it and came up with this tasty stir-fry. The red cabbage goes really well with the sweet and tangy sauce. And yes, red cabbage is low-FODMAP, just make sure you stick with the one cup serving size.

Tofu Xpress

I love tofu and have been eating it at least once a week lately, as my husband enjoys it too. Preparing tofu has gotten a lot easier since I treated myself to this Tofu Press from Tofu Xpress for my birthday. I used to have to use paper towels, kitchen towels and whatever weights I could find to press it out, taking up a lot of room in my fridge. This press makes removing the liquid from tofu so easy! It's sping-loaded, using a lot of force to press the water out. The water collects on top and, after only one hour, just pour it out. Once it's drained, you can use the same container to marinate the tofu. I was worried the press was going to be too small for the tofu I usually buy (Melissa's), which is 18 oz, but it turned out to fit perfectly. I highly recommend this tofu press!

I find it much easier to bake tofu than stir-fry it, so I use my Low-FODMAP Asian Marinated Baked Tofu recipe. It bakes in the oven while I stir-fry the veggies and prepare the sauce. I serve this dish over brown rice or tofu.
