"This is perfect for vegan diets, tofu may be added if you like, it makes enough for 2-4 people, depending on how hungry they are. For the addition of tofu: slice firm tofu into 1/2-inch-1-inch squares, marinate it in a 1:1 blend of peanut oil and soy sauce for 30-90 minutes, and then fry the squares in the skillet with the vegetables"
