Stir Fry with Tofu, Cabbage, and Mushrooms

What makes this recipe special is that it uses extra firm, extra dry tofu with savoy cabbage and shiitake mushrooms. 
We love this type of tofu because it crisps up and gets golden brown very easily due to its low water content. Find it at your local Asian grocery store.
