HOT AND SPICY TOFU

Firm tofu, bell pepper, and red onion, all quickly stir fried in a sweet and sour sauce.
A word of caution- this is VERY spicy!
If you like milder dishes, decrease the amount of pepper flakes or omit them altogether.

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons peanut oil
1 pound firm tofu, cubed
1 red onion, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 green chile pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1/3 cup hot water
3 tablespoons white vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Directions:

1. Heat peanut oil in a wok or large frying pan over
medium-high heat.
Toss the tofu into the oil, and cook until browned
on all sides.
Once browned, toss in onion, bell pepper, chile pepper,
and garlic; cook until just tender, about 5 minutes.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together the hot water, vinegar,
soy sauce, brown sugar, cornstarch, and red pepper flakes.

Pour over tofu and vegetables, toss to coat,
and simmer 3 to 5 minutes, or until sauce
thickens slightly.
