Sweet and Sour Tofu from Pickled Plum

This is one of my favorite go to recipes. I found this on pickled plum website https://www.pickledplum.com/recipe/sweet-and-sour-tofu-recipe/

This recipe is super easy and super good. My type of recipe. I may have had this one up before but it’s definitely one worth mentioning again.

Sweet and Sour Tofu

*14 ounces medium firm tofu
*1 red bell pepper cored and chopped into bite size pieces
*1 green bell pepper cored and chopped into bite size pieces
*2 tablespoons vegetable oil
*cornstarch for dusting
For the Sweet and Sour Sauce:
*3 tablespoons brown sugar
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*1 tablespoon ketchup
*1 tablespoon soy sauce
*3 tablespoons rice vinegar or cider vinegar
*1/3 cup water


1)Whisk all the ingredients for the sweet and sour sauce (until sugar   has dissolved) in a bowl and set aside.
2)Drain tofu and wrap in paper towel or tea towel to remove excess water. Repeat 3 to 4 times until the tofu is drier. Slice tofu into 1 inch cubes.
3)Dust tofu with potato starch until all sides are well coated.
4)In a large pan over high heat, add oil and tofu and fry until all sides are slightly golden (about 7 minutes). Transfer tofu to a plate and set aside.
5)Add red and green bell pepper to the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes, until peppers have softened but still yield a crunch.
6)Return tofu to the pan, add sauce and stir until tofu and bell peppers are coated.
7)Turn the heat off, transfer to a plate and serve.
