Marinate Tofu:

1/2 block of extra firm tofu, cubed
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
a bit of water

While tofu is marinating in the fridge, prepare rice and chop vegetables:

1/4 yellow onion, cubed
1 carrot, juilienned
1 yellow pepper, cubed
2 cloves garlic, sliced
chopped scallions

Using a small frying pan, heat oil to medium high. Fry tofu cubes, saving marinate, until evenly browned. Remove from pan, set aside. Add onion, garlic and carrots to pan. If the pan is a bit dry, add some marinade to make it sizzle. Cover with a lid and steam for a few minutes. Add peppers and maybe more marinade. When almost cooked, add tofu and scallions. Salt and pepper.

Serve over rice : )

Makes 1-2 servings.
