First, prepare the tofu. Click HERE to see how to prep it for cooking.
Cut tofu into cubes. Stir together soy sauce, vinegar, cornstarch, teriyaki sauce and syrup with 1/4 cup water in a bowl. Heat a large skillet on high for 2-3 minutes. Coat bottom of pan with peanut oil and heat for 1-2 minutes. Add tofu and stir fry until brown. Add peppers, peas and cashews and toss for 30 seconds. Add onions, garlic, ginger and 1/4 cup of water and bring to a boil. Cook all together until veggies are no longer crisp, but slightly soft.
