Description

Serve on a bed of steaming hot jasmine or japonica rice or alongside sesame-seasoned udon or soba noodles. Add baby salad greens or shredded cabbage and roll in a warmed whole-wheat tortilla for an Asian wrap. Substitute sriracha or gochujang for the crushed red pepper flakes if desired.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons
vegetable oil
14 ounces
tofu (drained, cut into 1 inch cubes)
1  
onion, red (thinly julienned)
2  
bell pepper, green (thinly julienned)
3 tablespoons
garlic (minced)
1  
pepper, jalapeño (seeded and finely diced)
3 tablespoons
tamari
3 tablespoons
rice vinegar
1 tablespoon
brown sugar
1 pinch
red pepper flakes (crushed (optional))

Instructions

In a large skillet or wok, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the cubed tofu and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes until it begins to brown, stirring occasionally to brown all sides. Add the onion and bell peppers and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes more. Add the garlic and jalapeño and cook another 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the tamari, rice vinegar, brown sugar and red pepper flakes and let simmer for a few more minutes.
