Tofu Stir Fry with Orange Sauce
Half a head of green cabbage and half a green bell pepper that had been in the back of the fridge for a while were the inspiration for this meal. It turned out pretty good, but not spectacular so I won't bother with a recipe. The short story goes like this: I fried some tofu in peanut oil until golden brown (adding some soy sauce and maple syrup in the last minute or so). Then I set that aside and stir-fried the cabbage, bell pepper and a sliced carrot. Some garlic and ginger went in there, along with some chopped scallions, then the tofu went back in along with the sauce (soy sauce, veg. broth, sesame oil, maple syrup, orange zest and cornstarch). We were low on brown rice so we had it over quinoa.
