These Ingredients are in the sweet sour Tofu. The exact amount is in the recipe card below.
- tofu firm
- baking powder
- bell peppers
- pineapple in pieces, I like to take fresh pineapple
Sweet sour sauce
- tomato paste
- soy sauce
- roasted sesame seeds
If you try not to consume soy, whether for health or other reasons, then I have an alternative for you here without giving up the stickiness.
Here comes the cauliflower into play.
Cauliflower is simply a perfect substitute for tofu. We also prepare this glazed tofu with cauliflower.
Glazed cauliflower tastes heavenly.
You prepare it just like the tofu. However, instead of squeezing the tofu, put it in water for a short time so that the cornstarch sticks to it.
And again, make sure that the cornstarch is just hanging on the cauliflower.
And then you continue with aquafaba and flour. Which sauces do you love with sticky tofu?
Press the tofu. Then dice it in about 1 cm thick
Put the cornstarch in a bowl with a lid. Add the tofu and shake with the lid closed.
So that all parts of the Tofu are covered with cornflour, but should not be thick just thin covered
Now mix the flour (I take whole wheat flour) with the baking powder neatly
First dip the tofu into the aquafaba and then into the flour mixture. And spread on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
Now bake for approx. 10 min at 180 ° C (350°F), until the flour is nice and firm on the outside, could take a little longer
For the sauce mix all ingredients
Dice the peppers and sauté with the pineapple pieces in a pan and deglaze with the sauce.
Now add the baked tofu, this will absorb the sauce nicely and become nicely sticky as in the photo.
We eat rice with it.
What makes this sticky tofu so special?
- delicious and tastes like from a asian restaurant
- quickly cooked
- a comfort food
Tips & Tricks
You do not really need much and it's super easy.
What is important is that you first wrap it with a "dough" and then fry it or bake it in the oven before adding it to the sauce.
With the help of the firm outer layer of the tofu it does not decay and you have the perfect basis for a sticky glazed tofu.
Store the leftovers of this vegan sweet sour tofu in an airtight container in the fridge. There it lasts for 5 days.
You can easily make the sauce in bigger batches and freeze it. In this way you have always some sauce prepared.
