Main Ingredient





  • 1 pound extra firm tofu
  • cup tapioca or corn starch
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup San-J Mongolian Sauce
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • cooked rice, for serving


  • Drain the tofu and wrap in a clean towel or paper towels. Press the tofu for at least 15 minutes by adding weight to it. Once pressed, cut the tofu into strips. Coat with tapioca or corn starch.
  • Add enough oil to a large skillet or wok to coat the bottom of the pan. Heat the oil over high heat until it starts to shimmer.
  • Add the tofu in batches being careful not to over crowd the pan. Fry the tofu until golden brown on all sides, about 30 seconds per side.
  • Remove tofu from pan. Add the onions and cook, stirring, for one minute. Add the peppers, San-J Mongolian Sauce, tofu, and green onions, bring to a boil, and cook stirring for 1 – 2 minutes or until heated through.
  • Serve warm over rice and garnish with cashews and cilantro.
