Soy-Gochujang Glazed Tofu with green bell peppers and mint

  • 1 block extra firm tofu
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 2 T rice vinegar
  • cornstarch
  • coconut oil for frying
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 1 T rice vinegar
  • 1/2 T gochujang
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 6 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed mint leaves
Press the tofu for 20 minutes and cut into 1/2"-1" cubes.  Combine soy sauce and rice vinegar in a bowl and marinate tofu for 10 minutes.  Meanwhile, mix together soy sauce, rice vinegar, gochujang, and sugar.  Coat tofu cubes with corn starch and fry in coconut oil until crisp and golden brown.  Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel.

In another large pan, heat 1 T coconut oil over high heat and sauté green peppers until they start to brown.  Add garlic and let sizzle for a minute.  Place reserved tofu cubes and mint in pan and pour sauce over.  Toss to coat and serve.
