Ingredients

1 (14-ounce) package extra-firm tofu, drained
3 tablespoons dark sesame oil, divided
3 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce, divided
1 cup julienne-cut red bell pepper
1 cup matchstick-cut carrots
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 (5-ounce) package pre-sliced shiitake mushrooms
½ cup organic vegetable broth
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Cooking spray


PREPARATION

Cut tofu in half crosswise and again in half lengthwise to make 4 steaks. Pierce tofu liberally with a fork. Place in a shallow dish.
 
Combine 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon soy sauce in a small bowl. Pour soy mixture over tofu; let stand 15 minutes, turning once. Set aside.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil; swirl to coat. Add bell pepper, carrot, and salt; sauté 3 minutes. Remove from pan.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan and swirl to coat. Add garlic and mushrooms; sauté 4 minutes. Add remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce, broth, honey, vinegar and crushed red pepper flakes. Simmer 3 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat.

Remove tofu from marinade, reserving marinade. Heat a grill pan over high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add tofu to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Arrange 1 tofu steak on each of 4 plates; top each serving with about 1/3 cup carrot mixture and about 2 tablespoons mushroom mixture.
