Sauces - Tofu Cacciatore

1 lb. extra-firm tofu -- cut 1/2" thick slice
1/2 medium onion -- thinly sliced
1/2 medium green bell pepper -- thin slices
1/2 medium red bell pepper -- thin slices
2 large cloves garlic -- minced
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes -- drained *
1 tbsp. tomato paste
1/8 cup all-purpose flour

Before you cut the tofu, dry the block off with a clean kitchen towel. Then slice it in 1/2" thick slices. Set aside.

Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray. Add onion and bell peppers and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5-8 minutes. Add garlic, basil and oregano and stir for 15 seconds. Add tomatoes and tomato paste. Mix well, increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in shallow dish, mix flour with pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Coat large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and place over medium-low heat.

Dredge tofu slices in seasoned flour, turning to coat all sides. Add slices to skillet in batches and cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side, lowering heat if necessary. As tofu slices are browned, transfer to pepper-tomato mixture. Move pepper-tomato mixture over the tofu and let the tofu cook a bit in the sauce.

Serve hot, over either white rice or a little pasta. Maybe a green vegetable with it - like broccolini or broccoli di rape, or maybe some green beans sauteed in garlic and olive oil.

Notes : * reserve liquid from tomatoes. You may need it to cook the tomato-pepper mixture.

Original recipe called for weighing down the tofu and making a meatier texture. I omitted this step because I used extra-firm tofu and I didn't feel it needed the weighing.
