Sweet and Spicy Tofu

Earth Angel Vegan’s Sweet and Spicy Tofu tastes as good as… if not better …than take-out!  When you are in the mood for Asian flavors but want to keep it as healthy and low fat as possible try this recipe!  I made a batch of white rice to go with it… you could use brown rice or any Asian noodle.  This was very easy and very good! So when you are craving Chinese take out take just make your own!

First: I make up a batch of rice in my rice cooker and steamed some broccoli

RECIPE: preheat oven to 350

1 block of super firm tofu (I open the package and let it drain on paper towels while I make the sauce)

SAUCE:

1/2 cup Hoisin sauce (I try and find one without oil)

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon hot red pepper flake

Whisk this sauce up in a bowl.  Cube the tofu and toss with sauce.  In a glass baking dish add all of the tofu and sauce.  Bake for 30-40 minutes.  Open the oven and baste the tofu with the sauce every 10 minutes.

Serve the tofu and sauce over the rice and broccoli!   I garnished mine with sesame seeds and chopped green onion.   Double the sauce if you like it saucy!
