Stir Fry with Fried Tofu and Peanut Sauce

Step 1: Make some fried tofu.  Set aside on some paper towels to drain.  Also start cooking some brown rice there, to serve under everything.

Step 2: Cook up some veggies; I used an onion, 2 cloves of garlic, some broccoli, 2 carrots, 3 stalks of celery, a yellow squash, and some cabbage.  I used a little oil, about a cup of veggie broth, and a couple of dashes of soy sauce while it was cooking.  Also added some halved sugar snap peas at the end, so they don't get overdone.

Step 3: Now you are ready for amateur peanut-sauce-crafting hour!  I used:

2 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1 tsp. sesame oil
1" fresh ginger, grated
1/4 tsp. sriracha or red pepper flakes
1 tsp. brown sugar
1/4 c. water (maybe a bit more; totally to taste)

Whisk together in a small bowl or large measuring cup; feel free to tinker with the spices as you like.  You really want to try to have a balance of sour/salt/sweet.

Start your bowl with rice, then veggies, then tofu croutons, then sauce.  Bon appetit!
