In a small bowl whisk together 2 tbsp (30 mL) sesame oil, peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, garlic sauce and ginger.
In a wok over medium heat, sear tofu in 2 tsp (10 mL) sesame oil until golden brown, 4 minutes. Remove tofu and set aside. Add red pepper, 1 tsp (5 mL) sesame oil, minced garlic, and cook for 2 minutes.
