Drstevers Filipino Stir-Fry

From: dr stever

I developed this recipe for my wife: a Labor and Delivery Nurse. She is on her feet for 12 hours a day and must eat on the "fly". This recipe sustains her energy level with healthy soy bean curd and veggies! (I make this at 5 A.M with extreme LOVE!)


  • 3-4 tablespoons canola oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 cup carrot (julienne cut)
  • 1/2 head green cabbage (cut into small squares)
  • 3-4 stalks celery (1/2 inch pieces)
  • 10 pieces whole okra
  • 2 (6 1/2 ounce) cans mushrooms or 16 ounces fresh mushrooms
  • 1 (7 ounce) jar pickled whole baby corn (Chinese style)
  • 1 (19 ounce) box firm tofu (4 pieces)
  • 2-3 tablespoons hot spiced white vinegar (Sukang Maasim, available at Chinese and Filipino food stores)

Stir-Fry Tofu (to remove excess water, do not brown) set aside.

Stir-Fry Garlic, Celery, Carrots and Okra, then ….

Add Cabbage, Mushrooms, and Baby Corn (halved).

Return Tofu and mix.

Add Hot Vinegar to taste.
