Stir Fried Tofu and Vegetables

This is an easy to make complete vegetarian meal alternative to tasteless boiled or steamed vegetables. Wash all veggies throughly. An inexpensive wash can be made by adding a couple of tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide and vinegar to a large pot of water. Be sure to rinse. For variety, instead of tofu you can substitute a pound of extra lean hamburger or diced chicken breast

Chop the vegetables and tofu into bit sized pieces. Pour the olive oil into a large wok or frying pan. Coat the bottom thoroughly and heat. Crush the garlic with a press, dice the onion and stir for a minute. Add the tofu, the soy sauce and wine. Stir the tofu so that it aborbs the liquid, then add the brocolli, carrots and tomatoes. Stir slowly, until cooked. Add the red peper a minute before serving. Let the red pepper warm, sprinkle with hot sauce adding more soy sauce to taste. Still well and serve while the pepper is still crisp. You want to activate the pepper's vitamin A, but without destroying its vitamin C with too much heat.
