To be honest, this dish was created by accident. One evening, I was about to make Chinese fried rice. But everyone was so hungry as it was way past our dinner time. My husband, who couldn't wait any longer, just took the aromatic Jasmine rice( don't get me started on that!) and scooped up the stir fried vegs with tofu. And then the rest is history! It has been a frequent last minute dinner option ever since. :))
You basically need sliced yellow onions, cubed firm tofus and red peppers for nutrition and color. A lot of other vegetables can be added too! Carrots, Snap Peas, Celery....
Ingredients (for 4)
I big yellow onion, sliced thickly
3 -4 garlic cloves, pounded
3 tsp mushroom seasonings
2 tbsp. Sambal oelek
25 snap peas., ends removed and washed
1/2 Red Bell Pepper, sliced into squares
1 medium carrot, sliced
1 block firm tofu, cubed
Light soy sauce, if needed for extra flavor
Fry the onions and then garlic till slightly brown, add sambal oelek and mushroom seasoning. Let the mixture simmer for a few minutes and then add the tofu pieces and vegetables. Add peanuts for that extra nutty flavor, if you would like.
Let the whole mixture simmer for another 5-10 mins and then serve hot with Jasmine rice or brown rice.
