This recipe is best served over a bed of Brown Rice.  If using our recipe for Brown Rice, make a double batch.  Begin cooking the rice at the same time you begin making this recipe

This recipe can be made in a microwave oven, on the stove top or in a wok. Peel and dice the Onion.  Peel and mince the Garlic.  Cook the Onion and Garlic until the Onions begin to get translucent.  Mix frequently.

Add the Peas, Cauliflower, Tofu, Orange Juice concentrate, Ginger, Turmeric, and Cayenne Pepper.  When the ingredients become hot add the Orange sections, Almonds, and shredded Coconut.  Continue mixing to insure that the ingredients are evenly cooked

In a cup or small bowl mix the Soy Sauce and Corn Starch until they are smooth.  When the vegetables are tender add the Soy Sauce - Corn Starch mixture and continue mixing until the Corn Starch is dissolved and thickens the liquid, and evenly coats the other ingredients.

Serve over the Brown Rice and enjoy!
