I wanted to share this great vegetarian recipe with you that I tried yesterday. For us, it's a keeper.
So basically, You get 1 pound of extra firm tofu, from which you drain all the water. Put it in a few layers of paper towels to dry out. you can also put it under a heavy saucepan. Seperately you mix up a sauce of 3 tbsp. rice vinegar(I used apple cider vinegar),3 tbsp. sugar,1tbsp. ketchup,2tbsp. soy sauce,1/2 tsp. ground ginger, red chilli pepper to taste, and about half a cup of broth(I used water)
Slice one onion and chop 3 garlic cloves
Have your vegetables cut up to stir fry. You can use green pepper, carrots, snow peas, mushrooms, etc.
Heat up the wok. add a little oil, Add sliced onions and chopped garlic. Then add the rest of the vegetables. Stir fry for a couple of min. Add sauce. To thicken the sauce , mix 2 tbsp of cornstarch in some water, and add it to the sauce. After that , add cubed tofu. Stir fry for a min. or 2. Serve it warm with brown rice or noodles.
Try it and let me know if you liked it.
