I love tofu...it's a chameleon, and it's rich in phytonutrients called isoflavones that may prevent breast cancer to boot! To help it absorb more flavor, rinse and then pat dry with paper towels before using.

My boyfriend and I didn't hate this but we didn't really love it either. We both thought it was rather bland; I sprinkled dried powdered ginger, salt, and extra red pepper flakes on mine and still thought it was missing something. Only thing we did differently was to use extra vegetable broth instead of rice wine/sherry, perhaps that was the problem.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable broth
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon rice wine or 1 tablespoon dry sherry
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons sliced garlic
- 2 tablespoons minced ginger
- 3⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 14 ounces firm tofu, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon chopped roasted peanuts (optional)
