 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Brown rice
  • 1/3 c Tofu
  • 4 ts Vegetable oil
  • 1 sm Onion
  • 1 sm Carrot
  • 2 oz Green beans
  • A few leaves Chinese cabbage
  • -OR- collards
  • 1 1/2 c Mung beansprouts
  • 1 sm Garlic clove
  • 1 Piece ginger root (1/4-inch)
  • 1 1/2 tb Peanut butter
  • 4 tb Water
  • 2 ts Lemon juice

Cook the rice until tender.

Dice the tofu. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a wok or frying pan (skillet) snd
stir-fry the tofu until lightly browned. Remove from wok.

Slice the onion thinly. Slice the carrot into matchsticks. Chop the beans
finely. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in the wok and stir-fry these ingredients 2-3

Chop the cabbage leaves and add them to the wok along with the beansprouts.
Continue stir-frying until just tender.

Crush the garlic. Grate the ginger finely. Heat the remaining teaspoon
oil in a small saucepan and add the garlic and ginger. Cook for 1-2 mins.,
then stir in the peanut butter and then the water. Stir until smooth. (This
much can be done before the vegetables start cooking; the rest should wait
until they are nearly ready.) Add the lemon juice, soy sauce and milk, and
stir well.

Return the tofu to the wok, and stir in the peanut butter sauce. Mix well
and serve on top of the rice.
