Sweet and Sour Tofu

Submitted by: LAURAJK90

Introduction

This is a great recipe from the New Vegetarian Cuisine Cookbook. Linda Rosensweig, the author, comments on this recipe with her statement , "Sweet and sour is a combination often associated with Chinese cooking. In this dish, I keep the tofu firm and crisp by stir-frying it first and briefly reheating it toward the end of the cooking time." I have made minor ingredient alterations, such as onions instead of peppers, and adding bamboo shoots. I also prefer to marinade the tofu overnight, or at least for 30 minutes before cooking.
