    Anne Sainz's Note:

    This was inspired by a recipe from Jeanne Lemlin's "Vegetarian Pleasures." My family likes dishes with peanut butter and asian flavors so this was a winner right away. You can reduce prep time by using frozen broccoli and onions and jarred garlic and ginger. I made some changes so it is more in keeping with my Nutritarian eating style. Pressing tofu: Cut it into 1/2 inch slices. Lay the slices out on a clean kitchen towel that has been folded in half or a couple of layers of paper towel. Fold the kitchen towel over the tofu slices or place additional paper towels on top. Cover with a small cutting board and place 6 to 8 cans on top to weight it down. Let tofu sit at least 30 minutes before cutting it into 1/2 inch cubes.
