  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and Sriracha. Then toss the tofu in the sauce until evenly coated. Set aside and let marinate for at least 30 minutes. 

  • Step 2

    To install the flat plate, position it flat on top of the heating element and gently press down until it sits into place. Close the lid. 

  • Step 3

    Turn dial to GRILL, set temperature to HIGH, and set time to 13 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating (preheating will take approx. 6 minutes).  

  • Step 4

    When unit beeps to signify it has preheated and ADD FOOD is displayed, open lid and add 1 tablespoon oil to flat plate. Remove tofu from marinade (reserve marinade) and place on left side of flat plate, then place peppers and onions on right side. Leave lid open and cook for about 6 minutes, tossing frequently until tofu is lightly browned on all sides.  

  • Step 5

    When tofu is cooked, remove from flat plate, and set aside. Add carrots and snap peas and toss with the vegetables until softened, about 2 minutes. Push the vegetables to the side of flat plate. Add 2 tablespoons oil to flat plate, then add the beaten eggs and cook stirring for about 1 minute. Toss the eggs and vegetables together until evenly combined, then push to the side of flat plate.
