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.

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!
