Stir-Fry, Tofu and Sprouts (P, TNT)
Source: adapted from Vegetarian Times
Serves: 4

2 tbsp. cornstarch
6 tbsp. cold water
2/3 cup tamari or soy sauce
2 tbsp. dark roasted sesame oil
2 tbsp. rice vinegar or mirin (Japanese rice wine syrup)
4 tsp. fresh ginger, chopped
4 tsp. garlic, chopped
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 to 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 package firm or extra firm tofu, rinsed, drained
1 cup or more assorted sprouts (mung, lentil, etc.)

In a bowl, combine cornstarch and water, stirring well.

Stir in tamari/soy, sesame oil, vinegar/mirin, ginger, garlic, sugar and pepper flakes; mix well.

Cut the tofu into bite-size pieces.

Heat a large, nonstick pan/pot over medium-high heat. Add the sauce mixture; add tofu. Stir fry until the sauce thickens and the tofu is hot (approximately 5 minutes).

Add the sprouts and cook just until sprouts are heated through.

Serve over your favorite rice.

Poster's Notes:
I use more fresh ginger than the recipe calls for.
