Vegetarian Kung Pao Tofu with Broccoli and Peanuts
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: Tofu stir-fried with vinegar is a traditional folk remedy for malaria and dysentery. Peanuts are believed to improve the appetite and lubricate the lungs.
Kung Pao chicken is a famous dish that most likely originated in the Sichuan province of China. Its history is rather fuzzy but most people agree that it was named after a governor, general or other official from the late nineteenth century. Whatever its true origin, this dish has been popular for decades in Chinese restaurants everywhere and is practically synonymous with takeout. In this vegetarian version, tofu and assorted vegetables replace the chicken. The tofu and vegetables are all chopped into bite-sized pieces, in keeping with tradition.
