INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Pat dry the tofu and cut it into cubes. In a large skillet or saucepan, heat the 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat and panfry the tofu on all sides until golden brown, set aside.
  2. To a saucepan or wok over medium heat, add the cauliflower, mushrooms, peppers (seeds removed), squash, tomatoes, ginger(finely minced), garlic, soy sauce, and sriracha. Place the tofu on top of the sauce and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-high and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes, gently stirring once or twice.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low and remove the vegetables and tofu from the pan with a slotted spoon or skimmer, dividing them equally among 4 serving bowls.
  4. Crack the eggs into the serving liquid, being careful not to break them. Simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place one on top of each vegetable and tofu bowl.
  5. Add the cilantro (roughly chopped) to the cooking liquid and pour an equal amount of liquid over each bowl. Sprinkle a half tablespoon of parmesan cheese on top of each dish before serving.
