Drain tofu in a colander about 30 minutes Slice or cut into cubes as desired Mix coating ingrdients Meanwhile add oil ( peanut, or corn or canola ) to skillet about 1/2 inch deep and heat to medium high Gently coat all sides of tofu in coating mixture and add to pan and fry and turn with spatula until golden or as desired.

  2. Have patience as this may take a bit longer than you think it should Drain tofu on toweling paper.

  3. Remove excess oil from pan except for a few Tbs and add the vegetables and sliced mushrooms and stir cook till desired tenderness and vegetables well heated.

  4. Remove from pan, place vegetables on platter surround with tofu.

  5. Either pour desired sauce over the whole dish, or mix sauce separately into vegetables or serve choices of sauces served on the side.

  6. Notte; I always steam crisp my veges prior to stir frying since many of the family do not like veges too crsip and it also speeds cooking time of the dish Fried tofu is bland and one may add other spices to the coating such as chili powder, garlic powder, etc to kick up the taste
