  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of whole sugar cane
  • 1 tablespoon of rice flour
  • 200 gr. of tofu

Instructions

  1. Mix the soy sauce with the flour, sugar and vinegar, stirring everything well to avoid lumps. We reserve
  2. Grate the ginger and garlic, drain and cut the tofu into cubes, and put to heat a little oil in a pan. When it is hot, we toss the tofu next to the ginger and the garlic and, when we see that the tofu is golden, we remove everything from the frying pan and we reserve, leaving the oil in the frying pan.
  3. Wash the pepper and carrot, peel the latter and the onion, and cut everything in julienne. Put the pan back on the fire with the oil that has been left over to make the tofu and sauté the vegetables with the salt, pepper and oregano until they are soft.
  4. When the vegetables are at their point, we add the tofu with the ginger and the garlic, we throw the sauce that we had reserved, and we throw the 50 ml. of oil. We remove everything so that it mixes well making sure that the tofu does not fall apart and, when everything is well mixed, we remove it from the pan and serve it very hot.

Notes

  • We recommend avoiding the use of Kikkoman brand soy sauce, as it tests on animals.
  • As for tofu, the best option for this recipe is to use one that does not have much flavor, like the one you can find at Aldi, which is also organic.
