Steve & Sue's EWW Tofu? Yummy Stir Fry
My first thought when Steve gave me a helping of this was Eww, Tofu? Hence the name. But I gave it a try, and it was Yummy! It took some begging and pleading and chasing but I dragged the ingredient list, kind of, out of Steve and examined the dish and believe I came up with something that is close to the original. So here it is:
12 oz Firm Tofu , cubed (I had a 16 oz. package and used it all)
1 Eggplant, diced into 1/2" cubes
1/2 Onion, diced
about 1 T.bls of any of these: Butter, Margarine, Olive Oil*
some Soy Sauce
about 1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
some Mrs. Dash (I don't know what kind, I just used what I had in my cupboard)
Make some Brown Rice
Melt butter in large skillet. Add Onion, then Eggplant. Do not overcook or eggplant will get mushy. (It will still taste great, though). Remove from skillet and keep warm. Add diced tofu to skillet and brown. Add back in the onion/eggplant mixture. At some point, either with the Onion/eggplant or when you are cooking the Tofu, you can add the Mrs. Dash and Red Pepper flakes. I didn't know when, but I don't think it matters too much because it all gets mixed together in the end.
In a separate skillet, make scrambled eggs. Add scrambled eggs to tofu mixture, sprinkle with soy sauce to suit your taste, heat, and serve over the brown rice.
*I sprinkled Sesame oil on the tofu before I browned it so it got a different taste but I liked it. You might want to do that too if you have some.
