Buddha’s delight is an Indian vegetarian dish that consists of rice, onions, garlic, ginger, carrots and peas.

This recipe for Buddha’s delight is a classic Asian dish full of mixed vegetables and tofu in a savory sauce. Make your own take out in less than 30 minutes!

I love to make stir fry, it’s fresh, easy and totally delicious. I often make chicken and broccoli stir fry, honey garlic shrimp stir fry and this meatless Buddha’s delight.

I’m always looking for more ideas to incorporate protein into my family’s diet, especially when it comes to creating a balanced diet for my kids. I’ve found that incorporating soyfoods into my cooking has been a great way to up the protein in our every day meals. I add silken tofu to smoothies, serve a bowl of edamame as a snack, my girls enjoy soy based yogurt and I bake tofu for dinner in dishes like this Buddha’s delight instead of chicken.


Are soy products healthy?

April is National Soyfoods Month, and aside from the protein factor there are a lot of other great attributes of soyfoods. Soybean production is environmentally friendly and uses fewer natural resources than any other protein. Soy contains less saturated fat than almost any other source of protein and is also cholesterol free. Soy products can also be a great source of iron, fiber, calcium, vitamins A and D and calcium.

How do you make Buddha’s delight?

Buddha’s delight is a stir fried dish of mixed vegetables and tofu that’s coated in a savory sauce. I love to order Buddha’s delight at my local Chinese restaurant, and I was thrilled to find that it’s super easy to make at home too!

This dish starts with extra firm tofu and an assortment of vegetables. I used baby bok choy, sliced carrots, broccoli, snow peas and shiitake mushrooms. Other great options are cabbage, onions, snap peas, bell peppers or cauliflower – you can use whatever your family likes best. I like to bake my tofu before I stir fry it; it makes the tofu firm and crispy and it holds up even better without crumbling during the stir fry process. I also add canned baby corn and bamboo shoots which can be found in the Asian aisle of your grocery store.

The sauce is made with just a handful of ingredients that you probably already have in the pantry. Add the sauce to your tofu and veggies and you’ve got a restaurant quality dish at home!


I’ve found that it’s been so simple (and delicious) to incorporate more soy into our diet AND I’ve been able to achieve my goal of cooking at least one meatless dinner per week!
