Here's the recipe:

Vegetable Stir Fry


  • 1 block of tofu cut in cubes
  • 1 bunch spring onion
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 small green pepper
  • 10 small broccoli florets
  • Almonds (optional, coarsely chopped)
  • Peanuts (optional, coarsely chopped)
  • Edamame (optional)
  • 2 garlic pods
  • Stir fry sauce (from House of Tsang or Chings)


  • In a wok, put some oil. Add chopped garlic and sliced onions and saute.
  • Add peanut, almonds and edamame and saute.
  • Add carrot, green pepper, broccoli and cook under medium flame for about 10 minutes.
  • In a separate flat bottomed pan, add some oil. Add tofu.
  • Spread it evenly so the oil enables the tofu to become slightly crisp and golden brown.
  • Turn the tofu pieces so that it turns brown on all sides.
  • Switch off the flame.
  • Once your veggies are cooked to 80 per cent and look crunchy, add tofu cubes and the stir fry sauce.
  • Mix all the ingredients and cook for 5 minutes till the sauce gets to a boil.
  • Garnish with spring onions.
  • Salt is usually added in the sauces, so check the bottle of your stir fry sauce before adding any extra salt.
  • Serve with brown rice or noodles.
