I found this in Martha Stewart's "Body + Soul" magazine. I was looking for something else, when I saw this - she highlights 5 meals that are healthy and good for you - this was Friday's meal. Haven't tried this as yet but the combination of ingredients sounded so good that I posted it here for safekeeping and also as a request.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
- 1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks

- 3 scallions, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
- 8 ounces flavored baked tofu (cut into 1-inch cubes)

- In a large skillet or wok, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.

First time ever trying Tofu. Nice flavor and very easy to prepare.
I did not use brown rice but had salmon instead. I simply wanted stir fried tofu with mixed vegetables. I did add slices of ginger and it was great!
this was excellent! I didn't have sesame seeds, scallions, or sesame oil on hand, so I left those out... but did use the pepper flakes. really delicious!
