Spinach And Tofu Stir Fry

Hi there,
Can I like get cooking today right away? Because seriously, I don't know what else should I say when its a vegetarian stir fry. I am actually lost for words (Gobi Pakora/Cauliflower Pakora, Mushroom Rolls & Kurkuri Bhindi/Crispy Okra) since much has already been spoken in my other recipes as well (Indian Style Mustard Greens, Tapioca Stir Fry, Eggplant Tikka Masala & Chloe Masala)? Of course, undeniably, I must admit that spinach and tofu are my two favorite ingredients. I just so love them. They are affordable and nutritiously nourishing for beauty skin too. Perhaps I should also include that they kid friendly ingredients, unless of course, your kids are totality anti of them? Vegetarian dishes on the whole by far, wouldn't you believe packs healthiness? Am I wrong (Creamy Coconut Lentil Soup)? Enlighten me please. Spinach and Tofu stir fried alongside garlic and cumin seeds, omit chillies for kid friendliness, is just so absolutely vibrant and heart warming, do agree with me please (Spinach Sambar, Indian Tofu Curry, Gado Gado & Tofu Scrambled Eggs).

1 bunch (about 400g) spinach - discard roots, rinse and cut into 1 inch length
1 packet (about 300g) white hard tofu - cut into bite size pieces
1-2 red chillies - remove seeds and slice thinly
10 garlic - smashed
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
Squeeze of lemon/lime juice
2 tbsp of oil
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, saute garlic.
Add cumin seeds and tofu pieces.
Stir and cook till tofu becomes brown on the edges
Add spinach and sliced chillies.
Drizzle lemon/lime juice over and season with salt.
Stir for a couple of minutes prior to dishing out.
