Make

  1. Heat 1 tbs. (15 ml) oil in a large saute pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add tofu with a generous sprinkle of salt and cook, flipping occasionally, until golden. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Return wok to heat and add remaining tablespoon of oil. Add garlic and jalapeño to heated oil and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add in mushrooms and zucchini with a dash of salt, and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Finally, add in soy sauce, pepper, ginger, sugar, tofu, and green onions. Toss to mix and season to taste with more soy sauce or pepper.
  5. Serve with rice.
