  • 1 package drained tofu
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch (optional- depending on how you'd like to cook it)
  • rice- for serving (optional)
  • vegetable for serving (optional)

Sweet+Sour Sauce


  • Drain or press tofu then cut into small cubes. Cook according to your preference (baked, pan seared, or air fried). 
    Note: I tossed mine in cornstarch and put it in the air fryer for about 15 minutes.
  • While the tofu is cooking, begin cooking your rice and vegetables (if you so choose).
  • Once your rice and veggies have started cooking, mix together the sweet+sour sauce ingredients and transfer to a large pan.
  • On medium-low heat, allow the sauce to thicken. Stir consistently until sauce reaches a syrup-like consistently. 
  • Once your tofu is done cooking, toss the pieces in the sauce until all pieces are coated.
  • Plate the tofu with your veggies and rice. Enjoy!
