“Hempfu” Stir Fry

My recipe this week is basically an “everything-but-the-kitchen-sink” conglomerate. The one thing that makes it different is instead of using tofu (which is made out of soy), I used hempfu (a tofu-type product made out of hemp). I stopped eating soy when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and it has helped a lot. The other thing I love about the hempfu? It has 25% iron. For me that is huge because of my iron deficiency.

I came across hempfu at the local grocery store and have been using it to make Asian-inspired dishes. Similar to soy tofu, it doesn’t have a flavor so you need to be creative and use herbs and seasonings to give it flavor. This stir fry had more of an Indian flavor since I decided to skip the soy sauce (which I don’t eat because it’s soy) and use turmeric, garlic, dried herbs, salt and pepper to give it more of a curry flavor. The vegetables I used were orange bell pepper, sugar snap peas, and spinach.

It was hearty and filling which just hit the spot on a cold, rainy day and gave me the energy I needed to go workout with my personal trainer. So you might be hearing more about this new product as I’m thinking it may become a staple in my diet. If you decide to make this recipe, let me know how it turns out for you.
