Food: Tofu and green veggie stir fry with rice noodles

This one was entirely [EDIT]'s creation. All I did was request the inclusion of fennel.

[EDIT] says (and I'm paraphrasing avoiding a fight here):

'Celery, cabbage and fennel stalks and greens were lightly sauteed in a small amount of canola oil and Bragg's Liquid Aminos. Sprinkled that with cayenne pepper and freshly cut chives. The tofu was fried in sesame oil and sprinkled with powered ginger and then tossed on top of the previous veggies. Using the same frying pan that was used for the tofu, more sesame oil was added and lightly blanched green beans were fried with sugar and rice vinegar. The beans were added to the veggie and tofu mix and then served aside quick fried rice noodles, sprinkled with salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and a pinch of Chinese five spice.'

I have to say, the mixture of fresh chives and fennel was a very herby treat.

And again, this was total improvisation; just using whatever was in the kitchen trying to appease someone.  But still tasty.
