Tofu & Brussels Stir- Fry!

Dinner last night was a unique but delicious combination of scallion, tofu, carrot, brussels, and wide stick lomein noodles. Personally, I believe brussels sprouts are one of the greatest vegetables. I cannot understand why they are so despised by a good portion of society. Brussels sprouts are a member of the cabbage family, feature significant anticancer compounds, and are high in fiber, vitamins and minerals. What's not to like?! For my dish, I simply quartered the brussels, and stir-fried them together with the carrots and scallions until lightly browned. I also stir-fried the cooked lomein in a small amount of oil to crisp up some of the edges and pan fried my tofu, resulting in a a crispier texture. Last but not least, I added my favorite korean sauce for flavor. Featured below is a recipe for a korean stir-fry sauce.
