  2. In a bowl, stir in the soy sauce, grated ginger, minced garlic, habanero sauce, black pepper, salt, and cornstarch; pour on the cooked tofu; cook for 4 mins and set aside.

  3. Add the frozen or dry broccoli and cook for 6 minutes.

  4. In a pan, pour the remaining olive oil; add the red cabbage, and cook for 5 minutes.
