Szechuan Tofu and Eggplant

Numb your mouth with this spicy dish

The traditional flavors of Szechuan cooking, including tongue-tingling Szechuan peppercorns, chili bean paste, and Chinese black vinegar come together in this boldly spiced dish. The tofu ensures that it’s protein-packed and the eggplant gives us our veggies.  Also, it’s completely vegan and other than pressing the tofu (which is recommended but not required), you can get this dish on the table in 30 minutes.
