In the same skillet or wok, add a little more oil and add carrots, broccoli and red pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add cabbage and snap peas. Cool for another minutes and add sauce. Cook for another 1-2 minutes then add tofu. Cook until completely heated through then enjoy!
