Sweet and Sour Tofu
1 block firm tofu, pressed in a towel for 15 minutes and cut into desired shape- triangles, squares, etc.
Canola or Peanut Oil for frying
Sweet and Sour Sauce:
(You will have lots of extra sauce- you can half the recipe if desired)
Take pressed tofu and dust with cornstarch. Heat oil over high heat on stove (or use deep fryer). Fry tofu in batches. (too many and the heat will lower excessively, resulting in greasy tofu.) Let drain on rack or on plate with a paper towel. Reserve, keeping warm in oven on low or covering with aluminum foil etc.
Make Sweet and Sour Sauce:
Serve with rice and vegetable dish of your choice. You can mix the tofu into the sauce or serve it on the side. Very yummy!
DH loved this, and said sweet and sour sauce was his “favorite.” I liked it too. It’s not “authentic” Chinese food, but it’s tasty!
