  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray or with the vegetable oil, and preheat over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, mushrooms, celery, and scallions, and stir-fry for about 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are crisp-tender. Cover the skillet periodically if it begins to dry out. (The steam from the cooking vegetables will moisten the skillet.) Add a few teaspoons of broth or water to the skillet only if necessary.
  2. Add the peas and tofu to the skillet mixture, and toss to mix well. Add the rice and soy sauce, and cook, tossing gently, for another minute or 2, or until the mixture is thoroughly heated and the flavors are well blended. Add a little broth or water if the mixture seems too dry. Serve hot.
