Tofu Garlic & Peppers Stir Fry Recipe

Tofu Garlic & Peppers Stir Fry

Today’s vegan lunch was a Tofu Garlic & Peppers Stir Fry. By lunch time I was famished, so I needed something quick and easy that I could make with ingredients I already had on hand. Lucky for me, I had everything I needed to throw together this delicious stir fry. It turned out great! It can be served alone or with rice, noodles or whatever you fancy.

Tofu Garlic & Peppers Stir Fry

1 14 oz. package Wild Wood Super Firm Tofu, pressed and patted dry*
1 medium red bell pepper, 1-inch diced
1 medium green bell pepper, 1 inch diced
1 medium yellow onion, 1-inch diced
1 medium purple onion, 1-inch diced
10 cloves garlic, peeled, whole, slightly crushed
1 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon Braggs Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 medium lemon, for juice

Slice tofu into 4 equal slices, then cut each slice in half, lengthwise, to make 8 strips. Season tofu on all sides with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Add 1/3 of oil to non-stick pan and brown tofu on all sides on medium heat. Remove tofu and cut each strip into 4 even pieces (crosswise) and set aside. There should be 32 pieces at this point.

Add remaining 2/3 of oil to pan, medium high heat. Add garlic, peppers and onions to oil and stir fry until veggies are just tender. Add Braggs (or soy sauce) to veggies and coat evenly. Turn off heat, add tofu back to pan, squeeze in the juice of the lemon and mix thoroughly. Serve and enjoy!

Serves 4.
