Take Out Chinese Part 2: Delectable Tofu in Spicy Garlic Sauce and Perfect Fried Rice

From the Page

In a saucepan heat your oil on medium & saute your minced garlic for about 30 seconds (make sure to stir continually so your garlic doesn’t burn!).  Turn heat to high. Add your sauce and stir to combine.  Whisk in your corn starch to ensure no clumping!  Turn your heat down to low-medium.  Once it sits, you  may need to add more liquids (broth or water) if it becomes too thick. Stir in your cubed tofu.  May rest on stove until you’re ready to eat. Cover & turn your heat to low & do not open your pot for 20 minutes!! We’ll saute these for your greens (full of calcium and vitamin C!). Heat your wok (or cast iron) to medium-high heat. Add your oil, garlic, mushrooms, and 1 Tablespoon of soy sauce and saute until soft. Add your onion,scallion, baked carrots and beets and fry for about 1 minute (stirring to make ensure everything cooks properly).  Add  1 Tablespoon of soy sauce, cook until softened. Add your rice and remaining soy sauce.  Flatten your rice until it cooks.  Mix in all of your vegetables! (If it starts to dry out, add 1 Tablespoon of water at a time). Add your beet greens and steam until wilted.  Like most greens, they’ll cook down (a lot). Plate you delicious at-home Asian meal & enjoy eating whole!

I’ve actually been asked by some supermarket staff if I would like them to cut off the greens and discard them for me! I get a funny look when I say “no thank you – we eat them”. We love them for our salads and stir fries, too! Notify me of new posts via email. May I help you find something?
