    Tofu, extra firm, 1 block cubed

    Sauce:
    HOT

    * 1 tb Bean paste; hot, or chili
    * 1 tb Minced green onion
    * 1 tb Fresh ginger root
    * 1 tb Minced garlic

    Sweet and Sour

    * 1/2 c Soy sauce

    * 2 tb Wine cooler; sherry or sake
    * 1 1/3 tb Vinegar; sweet or sherry
    * 1 1/3 tb Cornstarch; approximate

    * Ground pepper; assorted

Directions

1. Begin with the sauce; should be pre-prepared.
Prepare the hot and sweet sour mixtures in separate bowls. Heat 2 tablespoon of oil. Stir fry the "HOT" mix until fragrant. Add the "Sweet and Sour" blend and cook until liquid thickens. Cool and refrigerate if necessary (2 to 3 days).
NOTE: A little goes a long way. Use about 1/3 of the sauce for entrees that serve 2 to 3.

2. Chop all vegetables and tofu. Heat stir-fry oil in wok or pan. Toss in tofu and fry 2-3 minutes, then add other veggies. Stir-fry for 10-15 minutes, until tofu is golden. Add sauce, toss together, and serve immediately.
