2 pieces of Firm Tofu
2 tomatoes
2 tablespoons avocado oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Sea salt, black pepper, and light brown sugar to taste
3 clove garlic, some ginger, and 1 green onion
1/2 cup water

Method:

  1. Slice 2 firm tofu into cubes, soak them in warm salt water for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Dice 2 tomatoes into cubes.
  3. Chop 1 green onion, 3 garlic cloves, and some ginger.
  4. Add sea salt, black pepper, soy sauce, and light brown sugar to taste to make the stir-fry sauce.
  5. Beat 2 eggs in a bowl, drain the salted water out of the soaked tofu, coat tofu with egg.
