Stir-Fried Tofu, Shiitake Mushrooms, and Chinese Peas Recipe
Randy Mayor; Jan Gautro
In this recipe, fresh ginger is combined with salt then sits for five minutes. The salt draws out some of the ginger juice, making it drier, which is better for stir -frying; it also decreases the ginger's pungency.
