6b80a74bcb655b92c24b 550

Sprouted some bean sprouts last week, meanwhile I had some colorful bell peppers needed to be used up, then this was the quick-easy stir-fry I put together.















1 ½ tablespoons peanut oil
or other vegetabe
1 pound tofu
firm, pat dry and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 cloves garlic
½ inch ginger
peeled and finely chopped
2 scallions, spring or green onions
1 sweet red bell peppers
or any other color, or a mixture, slice into strips
1 cup mung bean sprouts
1 tablespoon vegetarian oyster sauce
or to taste, or oyster sauce
1 ½ tablespoons soy sauce, tamari
or to taste
1 teaspoon black bean sauce
prefer black bean garlic sauce, optional
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons cilantro
fresh, for serving
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
fresh, for serving


Heat a 1 tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet or a wok over medium-high heat until hot.

Add the tofu cubes, and cook until all the sides are golden and brown, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.

Transfer the tofu cubes onto a plate. Set aside.

Heat the remaining oil in the skillet or wok over medium high heat.

Add the garlic, ginger and scallions, stirring constantly, and cook until very fragrant, about 40 seconds.

Add the sweet bell pepper strips, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the peppers start to become soft but still crispy.

Stir in the mung bean sprouts, and cook about 2 minutes until heated through.

Add the oyster sauce, soy sauce, black bean sauce, sesame oil and rice vinegar, and stir until mix well.

Cook for another 2 minutes or so, you may adjust the seasonings if desired. Remove from the heat.

Place over a bed of rice and sprinkle the cilantro on top.

Serve warm.

I'm looking forward to trying this with my home-sprouted sprouts! I have a question; is the soy sauce regular or the dark soy which is sweeter and often used in stir-fries, but much sweeter? Just wondering.
