Who says vegetarian food can't be seriously yummy.

I am working on having a vegetarian meal for dinner at least twice a week and came up with this stir fry. As previously mentioned, Winco had a good deal on broccoli. I also grabbed some cauliflower for a couple meals.

Normally I use crimini mushrooms, but Winco had knocked a dollar off the price of the white mushrooms, so we went with those (tho I much prefer the criminis and when the price is equal, always get those).

I rough chopped the 'shrooms and cut up the broccoli and cauliflower. I had previously cut up a block of firm tofu and placed the slices between some paper towel and pressed the excess water out of it with some soup cans on a plate over them.

When I had everything ready, I broke out the wok and heated it up and added a bit of vegetable oil with some walnut oil added. I finished cutting the tofu into slivers and stir fried it in the oil in 2 batches. I put it aside in a bowl and sprinkled some soy sauce over it and let it sit.

I then put the mushrooms in to stir fry and when those were almost done, added the cauliflower and broccoli and stir fried those. When they were almost done, I added some minced garlic and then added back the tofu. I then added some oyster-flavored sauce and a bit of cornstarch and water to thicken everything.

I served it over brown rice I had cooked up a bit earlier.

This would probably be good if you like broccoli!

Yup, esp when one discovers broccoli isn't supposed to be cooked to gray and limp. I loathed broccoli until I was in my mid 20s because all the broccoli my mom served was gray and limp. And cauliflower isn't supposed to be gray and mushy.
