Black Pepper Tofu Curry

I have been trying to eat healthier and be a good human, but let’s be honest no one likes boring bland food. So this black pepper tofu curry is perfect, it’s filled with veggies and protein without compromising the flavor. You can make this ahead of time and use it as meal prep. What I find easiest is to precut all the veggies, makes the process of making it even easier. It comes together in under 20 minutes. Serve it with white or brown rice, you can even serve it with quinoa. You can add any veggies you like to this. Hope you like this, tag me when you make its @zheelicious.
