Wash produce before use
Cook the rice
- Rinse the rice.
While the rice cooks, prepare the tofu.
Prep and crisp the tofu
- Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; crumble the tofu into corn-kernel-size pieces.
In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 3 tablespoons [6 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the tofu and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp and lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the tofu to a paper-towel-lined plate and season with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan.
While the tofu cooks, start preparing the vegetables.
Prep the vegetables and sauce
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
- Trim the stem ends from the maitake mushrooms; separate the mushrooms.
- Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into 1-inch pieces.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.
Cook the stir-fry
Add the Sichuan sauce mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until thickened slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the tofu and carrots and cook until the tofu is warmed through and the vegetables are crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Rinse the rice.
- Measure the water for the rice.
- Pat the tofu dry and crumble.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Garnish with the scallions.
