Sauce: 1/2 c. hot water
1/2 c. almond butter (original recipe was for peanut butter -
                      I use almond cause I'm allergic to peanut)
1/4 c. cider vinegar

2 c. onion, thinly sliced
1 c. chopped cashews

Sauce:  In small saucepan, whisk together almond butter and hot water 
until you have a uniform mixture. Whisk in remaining sauce ingredients 
and set aside.  Saute: Stir-fry half the ginger and half the garlic in 
1 T. oil.  Add tofu chunks, stir-fry for 5-8 minutes. Mix with sauce. 
Wipe wok clean, saute remaining ginger & garlic in 2 T. oil. Add onions 
and fresh pepper, saute for about 5 min. Add chopped broccoli, cashews

2 cakes of tofu, frozen overnight and thawed
1/2 c. water or vegetable stock
1 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 c. cornmeal or cornstarch
Marinade:  1/3 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. rice vinegar
1 T. finely grated gingerroot
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
dash cayenne
Sauce:  3 T. soy sauce
1/4 c. dry sherry
2 tsp. rice vinegar
2 tsp. honey or brown sugar
Vegetables:  3 T. oil
3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 c. thinly sliced onion
6 c. mix of coarsely chopped pak choi, chard, kale, 
    nappa cabbage or 9 c. chopped spinach

Gently squeeze as much liquid out of thawed tofu as possible.  
Cut tofu crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices, then diagonally, 
to make 4 triangles.*  Combine marinade ingredients and mix well.  
Arrange tofu triangles in one layer in a dish and cover with 
marinade.  Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes to absorb the 
flavors.  Prepare sauce mix by combining all ingredients in a 
small bowl.  In a separate bowl mix the water or stock and the 
1 tsp. cornstarch.  Dredge marinated tofu pieces in cornmeal or 
cornstarch and fry over medium heat in 1/8 to 1/4 inch of oil, 
for 3-4 minutes on each side.  Drain and keep warm in 200F oven.  
Add leftover marinade to sauce mix.  Heat 3 T. oil in a wok.  
Stir-fry garlic and onion until onion is tender.  Add greens and 
continue stir-frying until just wilted but not mushy.  Add sauce 
mix and cornstarch mix and stir-fry just until sauce is thickened.  
Add reserved fried tofu.  Serve with rice.

* I cut the tofu into many more smaller triangles.

This last recipe in particular is incredibly flavorful!  Enjoy!
