    2      Teaspoons     Honey -- or brown sugar
                         -----Vegetables-----
    3      Tablespoons   Oil
    3      Cloves        Garlic -- minced or pressed
    1      Cup           Onion -- thinly sliced
    6      Cups          Cabbage Mix -- coarsely chopped *
 
 * pak choi, chard, kale, nappa or 9 cup chopped spinach
 
 Gently squeeze as much liquid out of thawed tofu as possible. Cut
 tofu crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices, then diagonally, to make 4
 triangles. Combine marinade ingredients and mix well. Arrange tofu
 triangles in one layer in a dish and cover with marinade. Allow to sit
 for at least 10 minutes to absorb the flavors. Prepare sauce mix by
 combining all ingredients in a small bowl. In a separate bowl mix the
 water or stock and the 1 teaspoon cornstarch. Dredge marinated tofu
 pieces in cornmeal or cornstarch and fry over medium heat in 1/8 to 1/4
 inch of oil, for 3-4 minutes on each side. Drain and keep warm in 200F
 oven. Add leftover marinade to sauce mix. Heat 3 tablespoon oil in a
 wok. Stir-fry garlic and onion until onion is tender. Add greens and
 continue stir-frying until just wilted but not mushy. Add sauce mix
 and cornstarch mix and stir-fry just until sauce is thickened. Add
 reserved fried tofu.
