How to Make It

  1. Wrap tofu in several layers of heavy-duty paper towels. Press with a heavy object for about 30 minutes to remove excess water. Remove paper towels; pat tofu dry, and cut into 3/4-inch cubes.

  2. . While tofu drains, combine soy sauce and next 5 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.

  3. . Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

  4. . While rice cooks, heat 1 teaspoon sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add tofu; cook 10 minutes or until lightly browned on all sides. Remove tofu from pan; keep warm.

  5. . Heat remaining 1 teaspoon sesame oil in pan. Add ginger and garlic, and sauté 30 seconds. Add zucchini and bell pepper; sauté 2 minutes. Add green onions; sauté 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp tender. Add soy sauce mixture and tofu. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes. Serve immediately over hot cooked basmati rice.
