Tasty Stir Fry Tofu

Today I found a block of fried tofu that almost passes its expiry date in my fridge, so guess what we are having for supper tonight?! Yep, a simple dish of tasty stir fry tofu.
1 pack of fried toffu, sliced (it made around 2 cups of sliced tofu)
2 scallion, chopped
2 cm of ginger, chopped
1 Tbsp of duck fat (or butter or cooking oil)
1 Onion, sliced
2 carrot, juliened
12 Yardlong bean (asian long bean), cut as long as your juliened carrot
1 cup of brocolli
½ red bell pepper, diced
black pepper, freshly ground
a pinch of roasted sesame seed
a pinch of dried shallot to garnish

Stir fry sauce:
2 garlic, smashed then minced
¼ cup japanese soy sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp maple syrup (or honey)
1 Tbsp corn starch

1. In container with lid, put the sliced toffu, scallion and ginger. Cover the lid and shake it gently until the ingredients looks like well mixed. Set aside to let the taste of ginger and scallion soak in a bit into the tofu. 
2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together all of the sauce ingredients and set aside.
3. On a wok over medium-high heat, melt the duck fat. Sautée the onion with the duck fat.
4. Add the carrot, yardlong bean, and toffu mix. Cook for 7 minutes or until the carrot is softened, don't forget to stir it often.
6. Add the sauce and stir gently to coat the veggies. Continue cooking until the sauce is thickened. 
7. Once the veggies are cooked enough to your liking, turn off the stove and remove the wok from the pan. 
8. Serve with rice and sprinkle the roasted sesame seed and fried shallot on top. 

Happy cooking!!

PS: I use duck fat for stirring veggies since it gives a nice unique taste to it. I bought the duck fat in a pot on local mart. Duck fat stays good for long if its frozen. I also bought the fried tofu at local mart, if you can't find a store-bought fried tofu, you can get a block of white firm tofu and do it yourself. You can find how to do it in here. I strongly recommend you to deep fry your white tofu so it will hold it's shape and won't crumbled up when you stir fry it.
