If you like orange chicken or sweet-and-sour dishes, try this saucy, sweet, Pineapple-Glazed Tofu, excellent for kids. Toss with some noodles, or add some diced veggies to make it an entrée.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 3
- ½ cup pineapple preserves
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- ⅔ cup pineapple juice
- 1 block firm or extra-firm tofu, cubed
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
Whisk together the pineapple preserves, vinegar, soy sauce, and pineapple juice.
Coat tofu in flour, then sauté in oil for a few minutes, just until lightly golden. Reduce heat to medium low and add pineapple sauce, stirring well to combine and coat tofu.
Heat for 3–4 minutes, stirring frequently, then add cornstarch, whisking to combine and avoid lumps. Heat for a few more minutes, stirring, until sauce has thickened.
