Once shimmering add all the veggies and toss firmly to combine. Cover and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes.

Cover and cook for another 10 mins till vegetables are cooked. Add thinly sliced tofu to the cooked veggies and mix well. Cook for 10 mins so that tofu can absorb all the flavors.

Notes: If you don’t like to make it spicy you can avoid using jalapeno peppers. It still tastes the same.
