   Tofu supplies the protein, and tastes similar to
   chicken breasts, in this quick-to-prepare colorful
   vegetarian main dish.
   
   Drain tofu, cut into 3/4 inch pieces.  Place between
   layers of paper towel and weight down with a dinner
   plate.  Let stand 10 minutes to compress and remove
   excess water.
   
   Heat oil, 2 tbsp broth and ginger in a frypan.   Add
   celery, onion and red pepper.  Stir cook over medium
   heat 3 minutes.  Add bean sprouts, continue
   stir-cooking 1 min.
   
   Stir in remaining broth, soy sauce and tofu.  Cook and
   stir gently over medium heat until vegetables are
   tender-crisp, and liquid is evaporated. Season to
   taste with salt and pepper.
