  • you can use shrimp instead of some or all of the tofu in this: Tasty Stir Fry – this is a great recipe that you can adjust based on what you have on hand
    1/2 pound flat noodles (I use whole wheat linguine)
    3 tablespoons oil
    1 small onion, sliced
    1 cup sliced broccoli
    1 cup sliced mushrooms
    1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts
    1/2 cup sliced bamboo shoots
    1 cup bean sprouts
    2 garlic cloves, chopped
    1 teaspoon ginger, chopped
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon brown sugar
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    2 tablespoons dry sherry (you can sub apple cider vinegar, apple juice, beer, etc.)
    1 tablespoon sesame oil
    1 1/2 pounds bean curd (tofu, I use firm or extra firm), cubed
    2 teaspoons sesame seeds
    2 tablespoons cashew nuts
    2 tablespoons green onions, chopped
    2 tablespoons green peppers, chopped

  • Heat a pot of salted water & boil the noodles till tender. Rinse, drain & keep warm on a serving dish. Heat oil in a wok & stir fry onion, broccoli, mushrooms, water chestnuts & bamboo shoots for 2 minutes. Add bean sprouts & fry for 1 minute. Place on dish with noodles. Keep warm. Add a little more oil & fry ginger & garlic for 1 minute. Stir in salt, sugar, soy sauce, sherry & sesame oil. Add bean curd. Fry gently till bean curd begins to brown. Mix together with the noodles & vegetables. Keep warm. Add a little more oil to the wok & fry the sesame seeds, nuts, green onion & pepper till the nuts begin to brown. Use a garnish for the rest of the meal.
