Comments: 11/18/2020 - I used sliced carrots, mushrooms, water chestnuts,
and a half onion as the fresh vegetables. I substituted a teaspoon each of
garlic powder and ginger powder for the fresh variety. I cooked the vegetables for
4 minutes before adding water and 4 minutes after adding water.
2/5/2022 - I had a full-sized bok choy that filled 6 or more cups, so I did not
use any other fresh vegetables. I used the baby corn, but omitted bamboo shoots.
I baked the tofu in the toaster oven. I cooked the vegetables in the largest pan
at burner setting # 8. Otherwise I followed the recipe.
