  1. Prepare Spicy Chili sauce. Mix all ingredients together in a small saucepan and boil for 1-2 minutes.  Turn down to simmer for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Prepare tofu. Spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray and place over medium-high heat.  Add tofu and season with black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.  Cook until tofu is browned (about 8-10 minutes).  Stir periodically to ensure even cooking. Set cooked tofu aside.

Spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray and add the garlic.  Sautee garlic for 1-2 minutes until it begins to soften.  Add the remaining vegetables and season with black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.   Sautee vegetables until they are cooked all of the way through (or to your preference).
