Sweet and sour tofu

Sweet and Sour Tofu

I can't really vouch for the authenticity of this recipe. It's my mom's, who got it from a church cookbook. So, not authentic in the least bit...but I can vouch for it's deliciousness. 

For the tofu:
1/2 brick of tofu
1-2 tbsp corn startch
few tablespoons of oil

Rinse the tofu and cut into desired shapes. Pat dry and mix with corn startch. I find it works best to put the tofu and corn startch in a sealable and shake it up!
Fry in a pan over medium heat in oil until all sides are browned. 

Set aside. 

For the Sweet and Sour sauce:

2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 onion
1 green chopped green pepper (I used half green and half yellow)
1-2 carrots, sliced
3-4 large mushrooms, sliced
1 can pineapple chunks
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup brown sugar firmly packed
2 tbsp. corn starch
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp. ginger

Saute onion and green pepper in oil until almost tender.  
Drain syrup from pineapple and add enough water to make it 1 1/2 cups liquid.
Add pineapple to skillet.
Combine pineapple liquid, vinegar, brown sugar, corn starch, soy sauce and ginger - add to skillet.
Simmer until sauce thickens a bit, stirring constantly. Add the cooked tofu and let simmer 5 more minuetes.

This sounds awesome! I am pinning this for later use. ;) Some of those old church and community cookbooks have hidden treasures. I have some from ladies in Nova Scotia. Sometimes they don't give complete instructions though. Those women know how to cook!
