Tofu teriyaki stir fry

This is one of my FAVOURITE dishes! We all have our go to dishes – the ones we make when we get in from work and don’t want to spend ages in the kitchen… Mine, is a stir fry! A teriyaki one to be more precise and as requested, and if you are someone that loves making everything from scratch – I am also sharing my teriyaki sauce recipe.
