This sounds so wonderful I just had to share it.  I am not so sure about the soy curd though.  Might replace that with some sweet potato (gold, of course)

Prep and Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium onion, cut in half and sliced medium thick
  • 1 TBS vegetable broth
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 TBS minced fresh ginger
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup sliced fresh shiitake mushrooms (remove stems)
  • 2 cups sliced green cabbage
  • 5 oz extra firm tofu cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 TBS tamari (soy sauce)
  • 1 TBS rice vinegar
  • 2 TBS chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 TBS sesame seeds
  • salt and white pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Slice onions and press garlic and let sit for 5 minutes to bring out their health-promoting properties.
  2. Prepare rest of vegetables.
  3. Heat 1 TBS broth in a stainless steel wok or 12 inch skillet. Healthy Stir-Fry onion for about 2 minutes in broth over medium-high heat, stirring constantly.
  4. Add red pepper, mushrooms, and cabbage. Continue to stir-fry for another 2 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and continue to cook stirring for another 2-3 minutes.
