Yes tofu! We tried tofu stir fry in healthy cooking - it was an exciting treat for the vegetarians in the group, and a brand new experience for a number of people. If you want to try and make it at home yourself here is the recipe. 

5 oz firm tofu, cut into thin strips
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 slice of ginger
¾ cup sliced onion
1 cup broccoli florets
1 cup carrot, cut into bite-size pieces
½ cup julienned red bell pepper
½ cup water
¼ cup black bean garlic sauce
1 tablespoon green onion (optional)

1.     Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Brown tofu on both sides with a little bit of oil, then remove from pan and set aside.
2.   Add onion, ginger and garlic to wok and sauté for 1 minute. Add broccoli, carrots, and red pepper; stir-fry until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Return tofu to work and stir in water and sauce. Heat until bubbling.
3.   Transfer stir-fry to serving platter and sprinkle with green onion if using. Serve with rice or noodles for a larger meal.
