Introduction: 5 Minute Stir-Fried Spicy Tofu and Beans

Picture of 5 Minute Stir-Fried Spicy Tofu and Beans

As a student I have not the time to cook and now that I'm off of school for a little while, I decided I should start cooking healthier foods. However, I do not have any cooking skills whatsoever. This guide is dedicated to those students. It's time for us to eat better and begin taking care of our bodies, otherwise, one day it will give up on us. And this day may come sooner than we expect.

This is a quick and easy 3-5 ingredient recipe (depending on your take on it) made to be easy-to-cook for those of us who have a talent for overcooking and undercooking food (sometimes at the same time).

As I discover more healthy and delicious, easy meals, and progress through the ladder of student budget "chef cooking." I'd like to share more to this community for others that are in the same boat.
