Drain, rinse and pat red peppers dry. In blender, pur?together peppers, 2 tbsp (25 mL) each extra-virgin olive oil and water, garlic, paprika and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper.

In skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Scrape marinade from tofu back into baking dish. Fry tofu, in batches, adding more oil if necessary and turning once, until browned, about 6 minutes.
