  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir ginger until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tofu, jicama, shiitake mushrooms, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper; cook and stir until mushrooms are golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add red bell pepper and seasoning sauce; cook and stir until heated through, about 1 minute. Remove from heat.
