Spicy Tofu with Peppers (Mary Ellen’s Cooking Creations)


1 block tofu, pressed (to get the extra liquid out) and cut into bite-sized pieces
Thinly sliced onion – about 3 slices off 1 small onion.
Sliced peppers – I used about 2 red and yellow peppers
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp chili-garlic paste
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 c chicken broth
Optional: chopped green onions

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat
Add tofu and cook about 5 minutes until starting to lightly brown
Add onions, garlic, and peppers. Saute 2-3 minutes.

Serve over rice or noodles and top with green onions
