The much-maligned tofu gets dressed up in lots of sweet chili love in this meal that everyone (from picky vegetarian to tough meat-eater) will devour. Crispy tofu will delight the taste buds like an answer to a prayer, and the salty-sweet soy-chili sauce combination will have you singing in gratitude. You won't settle for second-best tofu meals after this; this dinner puts tofu to the test and finds it passing with straight A's. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.

Meatlovers! If using 8 oz. or 16 oz. shrimp, pat dry. Follow same instructions as tofu in Steps 2 (skip pressing), 3, and 5, coating in cornstarch and cooking until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. Work in batches if necessary. If using diced chicken, pat dry. Follow same instructions as tofu in Steps 2 (skip pressing), 3, and 5, coating in cornstarch and stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.
Cook the Rice
Bring a small pot with rice, 1½ cups water, and a pinch of salt to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes.
Remove from burner. Keep covered and set aside.
While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Line a plate with a paper towel. Cut tofu into ½" dice. Place tofu on towel-lined plate and cover with more paper towels. Press firmly, then set aside, 5 minutes.
While tofu presses, stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into ½" dice.
Trim ends off green beans. Halve on an angle.
Trim and cut white portions of green onions into 1" lengths. Thinly slice green portions of green onions. Keep green and white portions separate.
After 5 minutes, transfer tofu to a mixing bowl and toss with cornstarch and a pinch of salt.
Crisp the Tofu
Line another plate with a paper towel.
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 3 Tbsp. olive oil. Add tofu to hot pan and stir occasionally until golden brown, 6-8 minutes.
Don't rush cooking the tofu; it will need the complete cooking time for the correct crispness.
Transfer tofu to towel-lined plate. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Keep pan over medium-high heat.
Cook the Vegetables
Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil, red bell pepper, green beans, and white portions of green onions to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly charred and tender, 5-6 minutes.
Add garlic and stir constantly until aromatic, 30-60 seconds.
If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes.
Finish the Dish
Add tofu, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce (to taste), red pepper flakes (to taste), and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Stir to combine.
Remove from burner.
