Lazy dinner in 15 minutes

I went to Trader Joe's after work last night and it put me home later then usual.I dug out my wok and stir-fried some cubed extra-firm tofu, in canola oil, seasoned with salt and pepper, over med-high heat for about 7 or 8 minutes or until the outside was nice and crispy. I removed the tofu and threw in a bag of T Joe's stir-fry veggies (snow peas, carrots, water chestnuts, onions, mushrooms and edamame) and some chopped chinese brocolli (acquired at the Durham Farmer's Market the prior evening).

I seasoned with a little salt, pepper and a few glugs of soy sauce. I cooked with the lid on for about 4 minutes and then stir-fried over high heat for another 2 minutes. Next I mixed in ab
out 1/4 cup of general tso's sauce (also Trader Joe's), a few squirts of Siracha (cause that's what that bottle does, it squirts), a little garlic powder and another glug of soy sauce. I threw the tofu back in and cranked the heat up towards high. Cooked another minute or two and the sauce got really thick. Voila! Super healthy, low cal dinner that allowed me to consume several glasses of wine without a guilty conscience. We were celebrating M's last day at his crap job before he starts his new one on Monday!!!
