    2 T chopped dry-roasted peanuts

    Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add squash, bell pepper and zucchini; sauté 4 minutes. Add cabbage and remaining ingredients, sauté 3 minutes.

    Though next time, I might skip the zucchini and add peapods instead.

    This recepie looks absolutely delicious! I am new to using Tofu and I went out and got some to try this recepie out. I got extra firm tofu. Then I noticed that the recepie says baked tofu. Do you buy it already baked, or should I bake it first? Also, should I marinate it in soy sauce?

    Thanks,

    Christina

    I didn't have baked tofu so I used extra-firm and it was fine. I didn't marinate the tofu--just added it. It absorbed flavor of the herb and soy sauce mixture. Oh, and I used cilantro instead of mint.
