Before you start

You will need a wok or frying pan.

Put the serving dish in the oven at the lowest setting to keep the vegetables warm while you cook the tofu.

Method

  1. In a small bowl, mix the orange juice, vinegar, and cornstarch. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the vegetables: Coarsely chop the onion, cut the pepper into strips, cut the green beans into pieces, and mince or press the garlic.
  3. Heat half of the oil in a frying-pan or wok. Add the chili pepper and ginger. Cook 1 min, with stirring. Add the onion, pepper, and green beans. Add a little bit of salt and stir-fry 7 min, until cooked al dente. Add the garlic and stir for 1 min, then put the vegetable mixture on a plate and set aside in the oven.
  4. Add the remaining oil and the tofu to the wok. Stir constantly for 5-7 min, until the tofu is golden. Add the vegetables back into the wok then add the broth. Cook 2 more minutes, then stir in the orange mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then serve.
