Sauteed Veggies and Tofu with Brown Rice and Peanut Sauce

This dinner is both easy and a pain in the ass. Easy because the veggies come frozen in a bag labeled "Stir Fry Mix" - just find some you like, keep them on hand, then come dinner time toss them frozen in the frying pan and voila. The tofu, on the other hand, is another story. Slice the light extra firm kind into chunks and dry it by letting it sit in the fridge on paper towels all day. Dry it some more by blotting with more paper towels. Fry it (with a little Pam) on as many sides as you can for as long as you can take, until golden brown and crispy. Make some light peanut sauce (I use the Cooking Light recipe thinned down even more with extra chicken broth) and some brown rice, stir together the tofu and the veggies, and voila. Delicious and so healthy!

I can never get tofu to work! Mine always ends up all crumbly and weird. Maybe I will try putting it in the fridge like that over night.
