  • Sauce:1/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbs Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1 Tbs sesame oil
  • 1 Tbs tamari
  • Stir-Fry:2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 lb extra-firm tofu, sliced, patted very dry, then cut into 2x1/2-inch (5x1.25cm) logs

  • 1/2 cup walnut halves
  • 1/3 cup water


  • Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat until hot but not smoking. Make sure tofu is patted very dry to prevent sticking. Add tofu to wok and stir-fry until lightly golden. Transfer tofu to a platter and reduce heat to medium-high.
  • Add a tsp of oil to the wok. Add garlic and crushed red pepper flakes and cook 1 minute. Stir in red bell pepper, broccoli and walnuts and toss to coat with the garlic. Pour in water, toss vegetables, then cover the pan. Cook 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender but crunchy.
  • Stir in tofu, then pour on the sauce mixture. Stir-fry 1 minute or until the sauce coats everything and is thickened. Serve on rice.

    Organic meats are also part of a healthy diet. The only organic meat of any kind Acme carries, (at very few stores) is the Empire Organic Chicken/turkey. “All natural” can be anything these days. Even Target has a selection of Organic meats, so why can’t Acme?
    Or at least bring back the Wild Harvest chicken, and drop that Perdue Harvestland stuff. Thanks!

    However, due to reasons that may involve health restrictions, lifestyle habits
    or diet purposes, some people would find that the diet alone cannot
    provide all their daily vitamin needs. The trouble starts when people begin to compromise good
    health in favor of rich tastes. Remember, natural doesn’t
    mean anything if it isn’t healthy.
