Spicy Thai Tofu with Red Bell Peppers and Peanuts

I recently downloaded the Epicurious app on my Droid. The thing is so handy; you can search for any kind of dish by ingredients, etc. and then create a shopping list.

So I found this recipe based on my search for tofu and vegetarian. And it is delicious! And really easy!

My version

Spicy Thai Tofu with Red Bell Peppers and Peanuts


1/3 C. olive oil
2 large red bell peppers, seeded, thinly sliced
3 T. minced peeled fresh ginger
3 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 14-to 16-ounce package extra-firm tofu, drained well, cut into 1-inch cubes
3 green onions, thinly sliced on diagonal
3 T. soy sauce
2 T. fresh lime juice
1/2-3/4 t. dried crushed red pepper
1 6-oz bag baby spinach leaves
1/3 C. chopped fresh basil
1/3 C. lightly salted roasted peanuts


Heat oil in wok over high heat. Add bell peppers, ginger, and garlic; saute until peppers just begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add tofu and green onions; toss 2 minutes. Add next 3 ingredients. Toss to blend, about 1 minute. Add spinach in 3 additions, tossing until beginning to wilt, about 1 minute for each addition. Mix in basil. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle peanuts over.
