Number of Servings: 2


    1 onion, sm-med
    3-5 garlic cloves
    1 cup mushrooms (buttons, baby bellas, or shitakkes)
    2-3 cup frozen or fresh mixed vegetables (I used broccoli, peppers, peas, and green beans)
    0.5 cup sliced water chestnuts and/or carrots
    0.5 tsp crushed red pepper (can substitute whole chilis to taste)
    0.5 tsp ground black pepper
    0.5 tsp dried oregano (or 1-2 tsp fresh)
    1 tsp vogue vegebase vegetable boullion (or another low-sodium boullion)
    1-2 tsp Bragg's liquid aminos (or low-sodium soy sauce)
    Pinch powdered ginger (or 0.25 tsp fresh ground)
    0.5 tsp ground cinnamon
    0.5 tsp "gravy master" browning sauce
    0.5 tsp curry powder/turmeric
    0.25 tsp ground cumin
    2 tsp vinegar (red/white wine, cider, or rice)
    corn starch (2 tsp, as needed)
    water for steam-frying


Chop all vegetables to similar sizes/slices. Drain and press Tofu (wrap 1/2 block in a towel and place between 2 heavy plates)

Pour approx. 1/2 inch of water into a large frying pan, add onion, garlic, black pepper, and chilis/red pepper. Saute in water until onions begin to wilt and garlic is fragrant. (3-5 minutes)

Add mushrooms and carrots (if using), continue sauteing until mushrooms begin sweating (another 5 minutes or so, adding small amounts of water as needed)

Add the mixed vegetables, water chestnuts (more water if needed), and oregano, saute approx 5-8 minutes, until vegetables are crisp-green (fresh) or hot (frozen).

Add a little more water and the tofu (pick up block and smoosh it between your palms/fingers so it crumbles, mix with vegetables.

Add rest of the ingredients except browning sauce and corn starch (boullion, Bragg's/soy sauce, ginger, cinnamon, curry/turmeric, cumin, and vinegar) and saute for 3-5 minutes, until tofu has absorbed seasonings and sauce starts to evaporate. Add browning sauce to color and corn starch to thickness desired (can omit starch if little to no water).

Makes 2 large or 3 small servings, depending on how hungry you are! (nutrition facts are for 2 servings)

  • This was pretty good but I would leave out the vinegar... it does make a HUGE amount of food & for me this would be about 6 meals! Thanks! - 2/22/08
