Chinese Cabbage and Tofu

chcabtofu.jpg (716733 bytes)Ingredients

3 lbs. Chinese Cabbage
1 lb. Tofu, firm
1 Onion, large

1 Carrot, large
2 tbsp. Garlic, crushed
2 tsp. Ginger, ground
1 tsp. Mustard, powdered
1 tsp. Oregano
1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper, powdered (optional)
4 tbsp. Soy Sauce

1 tbsp. Corn Starch


We have found that the flavor of this dish is enhanced by using two or more varieties of Chinese cabbage, such as bok choy, nappa, the traditional tall cabbage, or one of the more exotic Chinese cabbages found in some markets.  This dish is best when served over a bed of brown rice.  We suggest cooking 2 cups of brown rice in 4 cups of water while preparing the Chinese cabbage and tofu.

Peel, quarter, and slice the onions into 1/4 inch pieces and place in a wok.  Peel and crush the garlic and add to the wok.  Peel and thinly slice the carrot and add to the wok.  Add a little water and the ginger, mustard, oregano, and cayenne pepper.  Stir fry in the water until the onions become slightly translucent.   Turn off heat. 

Wash and clean Chinese cabbage and cut the leafy part into 1 to 2 inch pieces.  Cut the stalk part of the cabbage into 1/2 inch slices.  Place in the wok.  Cut the tofu into 3/8 to 1/2 inch cubes and add to the wok.

Mix the soy sauce, corn starch, and a little water in a cup and set aside. 

Turn on wok heat and continue stir frying until the cabbage becomes wilted.  If necessary, add a little water to keep ingredients from sticking.   Add the soy sauce mixture and stir rapidly until all the liquid in the wok is absorbed into a clear starch-thickened sauce.  If the sauce becomes pasty, add a little water to thin.  If the sauce is too thin, add a little more corn starch-water mixture and continue stirring until the starch dissolves and thickens the liquid. 

Serve over a bed of brown rice.  Enjoy! 

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-4)
