  • 1 large zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise into thin slices
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper

How to Make It
  1. Place tofu on several layers of heavy-duty paper towels. Cover tofu with additional paper towels; gently press out moisture. Cut tofu into 1⁄2-inch cubes.
  2. Combine 1 tablespoon oil and next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu, zucchini, and bell pepper; stir-fry 8 to 10 minutes or until tofu is browned and vegetables are crisp-tender. Add oil mixture; cook 1 minute, stirring gently. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
