Ingredients

  • 1 block of firm tofu, cubed
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, grated

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Start by pressing the tofu to remove excess water. Cut it into bite-sized cubes.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, cornstarch, ginger, and red pepper flakes to create the sauce. Set aside.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add tofu cubes and cook until golden and crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  4. In the same pan, add a bit more oil if needed. Add garlic, onion, and bell peppers. Stir-fry until vegetables are tender yet still crisp.
  5. Return the tofu to the pan, add pineapple chunks, and pour the prepared sauce over the ingredients. Toss everything together until well-coated and heated through.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve the Sweet & Sour Stir-Fry Tofu over a bed of steamed rice and garnish with chopped green onions.
