Hey ladies! How are you doing? We are in the middle of May already. Time goes so fast. Are you ready for summer?
Few days ago, I talked with one of my besties who is living in Southern California and running her business limocostamesa.com . She is a really funny person and makes me happy to be around her, plus she loves traveling and eating like I do : )
She knows how much I love Asian food and missing my home country, Japan, so she recommended me to make a delicious dish ‘Sweet & Spicy Tofu.’ Usually making Asian food is a little expensive, but this ‘Sweet & Spicy Tofu‘ is chap to make. Also, it’s Simple & Quick, plus a very healthy meal. What else do you need?
The taste was amazing! I can’t explain enough how delicious it is. Sweet & Spicy sauce is a good combination for Tofu and the vegetables. It is a little spicy, but sweet afterwords. Also, the main ingredients are Tofu and vegetables, so needless to say, It’s ‘Healthy’ : )
Ingredients (Serving size for 2):
7 ounces extra firm Tofu (If you love Tofu, use a whole package!)
1 tablespoon high-heat oil
1 clove garlic, minced
3 cup assorted stir-fry vegetables
3 tablespoon sweet chili sauce
2 tablespoon sriracha hot sauce
2 tablespoon soy sauce
2/3 cup rice, cooked (You can also use brown rice too.)
-An hour before cooking, wrap the Tofu in paper towels and place between two plates to help press out the liquid. Recommend to change the paper towels once during the process. Slice the Tofu into cubes.
-Heat the oil in a non-stick pan over medium high heat. Once it’s hot, add the Tofu cubes and allow them to pan fry until golden on side and them use tongs to turn the pieces. Brown all sides for best texture.
-Set Tofu aside and if the pan is no longer oily, add some oil. Saute the garlic and vegetables over medium high heat with a bit of salt.
-While the Tofu and vegetables are cooking, stir together the sauce ingredients.
-Serve the Tofu and vegetables with sauce over rice.
Try this delicious ‘Sweet & Spicy Tofu‘ this weekend, and let me know how did you enjoy this Asian meal.
Looking forward hearing from you.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend!
