Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best tofu to use in this recipe?

When it comes to the best tofu for stir frying, I would recommend using a firmer tofu rather than a softer one. This will hold up better in the pan and won’t fall apart as easily.

How do I know when the eggplant is cooked?

The easiest way to tell if an eggplant is cooked is to pierce it with a knife. If the knife goes in easily, then the eggplant is cooked. If the knife doesn’t go in easily, then the eggplant needs more time to cook.

How do I make the stir fry sauce?

The stir fry sauce is very simple to make. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup water, 1 tsp cornstarch, 1 tbsp soy sauce, and 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Stir until the cornstarch has dissolved.
