      Having made this recipe, I can now see how it would be effective for cleaning out the fridge. It might work well for people with small amounts of a lot of different vegetables. I actually tried to arrange to have most of the vegetables listed, though I skipped the cauliflower and bean sprouts. I was sure that I would not like the amounts of soy sauce and rice wine, so I decreased them from the start, with the understanding that I could add more later. I didn't feel that more was needed, but overall, I think that something important is missing. The tofu didn't do anything for me. I guess I just feel that this would taste a lot better with pork. Update: I was surprised to find that I like this dish much better the day after. The tofu, especially, had absorbed the different flavors of the vegetables, and was much more tasty.
