Buffy the Vampire Slayer Recipes
AMBER BENSON (ex Tara, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is a
vegetarian. She says Tofu is really good when it is done right. And adds
it is best with fried vegetables and a dipping sauce.
Vegetable Tofu Stir Fry
3/4 lb firm-style tofu 375g
1/4 cup rice wine (mirin) 50ml
1/4 cup soy sauce 50ml
2 tbsp vegetable oil 25ml
1 onion, chopped 1
2 cloves garlic, minced 2
2 tbsp grated fresh gingerroot 25ml
1 cup sliced mushrooms 250ml
1 carrot, cut in thin strips 1
2 cups broccoli florets 500ml
2 green onions, sliced 2
1 cup vegetable stock 250ml
2 tbsp oyster sauce (optional) 25ml
2 tbsp hoisin sauce 25ml
1 tbsp cornstarch 1
cooked rice or noodles
1/2 cup chopped cashews 125ml
1 sweet red pepper, cut in thin strips
Cut tofu into 1/2-inch (1 cm) pieces. In bowl, combine rice wine and
soy sauce. Add tofu pieces and marinate for 20 to 30 minutes or while
preparing remaining ingredients.
In wok or large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and gingerroot. Stir-fry approximately one
minute. Add mushrooms, carrot, red pepper, broccoli and green onions.
Stir-fry for about two minutes. In a small bowl, mix vegetable stock,
oyster sauce (if using), hoisin sauce and cornstarch. Stir until
well-blended. Add, along with the marinade from the tofu, to vegetable
mixture. Cook, stirring constantly approximately one minute or until
mixture has thickened. Gently fold in tofu and simmer one minute or
until tofu is heated through. (Tofu tends to become
"scrambled" if stirred too vigorously.)
Serve over rice or noodles, garnished with chopped cashews. Makes 4

*When coconut milk is not readily available, a good substitute can be
prepared with coconut and cream. Simply mix 1 cup (250 ml) light cream
or table cream with 2/3 cup (150 ml) unsweetened desiccated or shredded
coconut and bring to a boil on the stovetop or in the microwave. Let
mixture stand for 5 minutes, then pour "coconut milk" through
