Bell peppers add both color and crunch to pan seared tofu, which is paired with an oyster sauce spiked with spicy Thai chilies. Slideshow: How to Make Tofu

How to Make It

Step 1    

Pat the tofu block dry with paper towels to remove excess water. Cut into 1/2-inch thick slices.

Step 2    

Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of oil and after the oil is hot, carefully add the tofu into a single layer (hot oil may splatter). Sear each side for 2-3 minutes, or until golden and crisped. Remove the tofu from the pan and set aside.

Step 3    

Reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining tablespoon of oil. Stir in the garlic and cook for about 1 minute, or until the garlic is soft. Stir in the oyster sauce, water, chilies and bell pepper. Simmer for 1-2 minutes or until the bell peppers are tender.

Step 4    

Garnish with green onions and serve warm or at room temperature.
