Black Bean Garlic Stir Fry

Delicious on noodles or rice... or even by itself!
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 red and 1 yellow capsicum (bell peppers)
  • 2 medium sized onions
  • A cup and a half of tofu in strips
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • A small handful of bean sprouts
  • For the sauce: salt, pepper, black bean sauce, canola oil, sugar, water, cornstarch, oyster sauce (optional), sesame oil, low sodium soy sauce - all to taste! Make sure you keep tasting your sauce to make it just how you like it. 
  1. Slice the tofu into strips and fry it in a pan with oil, salt and pepper. Make sure it is crispy on the outside  before putting it aside
  2. Scramble the eggs and pour them into the pan, mix them slightly while they cook to keep them fluffy and flip the cooked egg as you would an omelet. Cut it into strips the same way you cut the tofu and set aside. 
  3. In a pan or wok, place your sliced onions and garlic to simmer in oil and black bean sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil and some soy sauce. Meanwhile peel the carrots and slice them into long strands. Chop the capsicum into slices. 
  4. Once the onions and garlic are slightly cooked, toss in the carrots and capsicum and stir well. 
  5. In a bowl, mix together some water and cornstarch and pour it into the pan. You may want to add some sugar depending on how the sauce tastes to you. Add sauces until you like the taste. 
  6. Before serving, toss the tofu and egg strips in and mix them before garnishing them with bean sprouts.
