Consider this your basic stir-fry recipe, and vary the vegetables to suit your taste or to use whatever you have on hand. When you prepare the recipe for entertaining and want to keep last-minute chores to a minimum, shop the vegetables and make the Ginger sauce and rice accompaniment in advance. Makes 4 servings Prepare the Ginger Sauce. Set aside and cover to keep warm. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat (see Tip). Add the carrots; stir-fry for about 2 minutes. Add the onion and garlic; continue to stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients except the tofu; stir-fry until the vegetables are crisp-render, about 4 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium; gently stir in the tofu and heat until warm, about 1 minute. To serve, spread beds of rice onto individual serving plates. Top with the stir-fried vegetables; drizzle with half of the Ginger Sauce. Top with garnishes and serve immediately; pass the remaining sauce. ADVANCE PREPARATION: Covered and refrigerated, the Ginger Sauce will keep for up to 2 days; reheat gently just before serving. The vegetables can be chopped in advance; stir-fry the vegetables and add the tofu and sauce just before serving. VARIATIONS: Substitute for the carrots, bok choy, mushrooms, or red bell pepper or add other vegetables (6 to 8 cups total) such as broccoli florets, baby corn ears, water chestnuts, bean sprouts, snow peas, shredded Chinese (Napa) cabbage, or sliced jicama, zucchini, celery. or tomato. For a firmer texture, substitute pressed tofu. TIPS: To make "scallion curls," slice the green parts of scallions very thinly lengthwise. Drop into a bowl of ice water; curls will form in 10 to 15 minutes. Stir-frying over high or medium-high heat (depending on the stove and the pan) cooks food quickly as it is constantly and briskly stirred and tossed with a spatula or large spoon. Woks are the traditional pan used for this method; however, they are not necessarily the best choice for stovetop cooking. Horizontal pans with wide bottoms, such as a 12-inch skillet or saute pan, are usually a better choice. For the best results, the food is never more than an inch deep as it cooks.
