Sweet and Sour Tofu

I was craving for some Chinese the other day so I decided to make this awesome dish.

 I remember how good was my ( Sweet and Sour Chicken ) too especially the sauce
 So, I made it with a Tofu version. 
It turned out really good!

The only difference I did was I added Bread crumbs and it was such a good idea.
It made the tofu crunchy on the outside and tender in the inside.
I definitely recommend this recipe to all vegetarian's/vegan's out there!
Let me know what you guys think!

Sweet and Sour Tofu


For the Tofu: 

  • 1 package extra firm tofu
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 eggs, beaten
Sweet and Sour Sauce:

  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 4 TBSP ketchup

  • 2 Tsp Garlic Salt

  • Green bell peppers, cut in bite sizes
  • Red bell pepper cut in bite sizes.
  • Pineapple chunks 
  • Onion
  • Press your tofu. Even if you get a extra firm one It's better to still do this step. (Place your tofu in paper towels and top with something heavy for a at least 30 minutes.)
  • Once the tofu is ready, Cut it in bite sizes
  • Next, in a mixing bowl whisk 3 eggs and 2 bowls for bread crumbs and cornstarch.
