I have a jar of red pepper soybean cakes that I don't have a clue what to do with. Does anyone have recipe or serving suggestions?

Hey Cricket!
I have absolutely no idea, but it sounded yummy(born and raised on tofu) so I did a dogpile search and came up with a few exotic dishes. I decided not to post the links though, as they seemed too wordy(and god knows I have been all that lately!).
So what time is dinner? I'll bring the white wine!

That sounds really good. Red Pepper Soybean Cakes, wow, never heard of them, but they sound great!

I don't usually buy food in a jar but they looked too good to pass up. But I don't know what to do with them...bake, fry, boil? Or what to serve them with. Maybe in a stir-fry?

I think I would make a stir-fry over jasmine rice. I love jasmine rice.

And I get a giant bag of frozen stir-fry veggies at Costco, they sell frozen stir-fry veggies in most supermarkets too.

After you start the jasmine rice in a pot, take another larger pot or pan, add about 2 TBLS oil. I usually use olive oil, but you can use any kind - peanut oil, canola oil, etc.

Heat on medium to high. Pan-fry the soybean cakes (or tofu cake), first on one side then until, until it browns lightly. Remove and put on a plate for later.

To the oil, (add more if needed) Add the veggies, cook until just tender crisp or however you like them. Add some minced garlic - at least 2 cloves. Add some fresh minced ginger or ginger powder (to taste, but about 1 TBSL fresh or 1/2 tsp powder). Toss in 1 TBLS arrowroot powder or cornstarch. If you don't have any, substitute flour. Add 1/4 cup orange juice and 1 TBLS honey, mix lightly but thoroughly. Cut the soybean cake into cubes and mix in with the veggies. Now add some tamari or soy sauce, to taste. Salt and pepper if you use them. Serve over the jasmine rice. Or any rice you like.

This is pretty much what I do using tofu curd.
