My husband makes the most amazing Sweet & Sour Tofu made from my Crispy Tofu! This is a delicious recipe filled with lots of fun colors and great flavors. If you love Asian food, you will love this Sweet & Sour Tofu recipe! 

 

What you’ll need:

½ Red bell pepper

½ Orange or Yellow bell pepper – or whatever color bell pepper you like!

4 oz of water chestnuts – half of an 8 oz can

1 cup cut green beans – fresh is best!

½ cup pineapple – fresh or canned

Tofu precooked to your liking – We love our tofu crispy! Check out this Crispy Tofu recipe!

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 tsp chili paste

2 teaspoon soy sauce

 ¼ cup sweet and sour sauce – We like Kikkoman’s Preservative Free Sweet & Sour Sauce

¼ cup sweet and sour duck sauce – We use La Choy’s Sweet & Sour Duck Sauce

1/8 cup water – to thin it out

Cashews to top

Next, heat up the 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, ¼ cup soy sauce, and 1 teaspoon chili paste in a wok or large pan on the stove set to medium. Then add all of the vegetables – and pineapple –  and cook for 3-4 minutes.
