TOFU PREP:
Place tofu blocks on paper towels and press between cutting boards for 1-2 hours. Slice one block into strips and the other block into cubes. (Thinner strips/smaller pieces will be crispier!)
Once chopped, press tofu pieces again for 30 mins.
For fajita tofu, combine cornstarch and fajita seasoning in a bowl. In a separate bowl, toss tofu strips with oil and coat with cornstarch mixture.
For Asian tofu, combine cornstarch with garlic and onion powder. In a separate bowl, toss tofu cubes with oil and gyoza sauce, then coat with cornstarch mixture.

BELL PEPPERS PREP:
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
Line two large baking sheets with foil, creating a divider in the middle so each pan has 2 sections. (Or, line four smaller pans with parchment/foil.)
Transfer seasoned tofu to prepared baking sheet(s).
To your other baking sheet(s), add sliced bell peppers.
Toss half of peppers with oil, hot sauce, lime juice, and Chili Lime seasoning. Toss the other half of peppers with sesame oil, Umami Seasoning, and salt.
Bake both trays 25-30 minutes, tossing halfway.
