Tofu with Red Peppers & Pineapples

Tofu + pineapples + peppers + onions = sweet and delicious dinner.

This is my famous crispy tofu which I have posted on the blog a few times already in different recipes. Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Tofu perfection.

makes 3 to 4 servings

Tofu with Red Peppers & Pineapples
1 box extra firm tofu
1 onion
1 red pepper
1 14oz can pineapple chunks
1 cup brown rice
Cornstarch
Sesame oil
Scallions (1 per person)

Pineapple Sauce
The pineapple juice from the can of pineapples
1/4 cup tamari
2 tablespoons agave
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Press the tofu. Get the rice going. Whisk together the sauce ingredients. Set aside.

Cut tofu into small cubes and toss with cornstarch to coat. Fry in sesame oil until crispy on all sides.

Cut the onion into chunks and sauté in oil until translucent. Cut the pepper into chunks add to the pan and cook until just softening.

Combine the tofu and the vegetables and pour the sauce into the pan. Cook until it has thickened.

Top the rice with the vegetables and tofu. Garnish with sliced scallions. Enjoy!
