This delicious Sweet & Sour Tofu is easy to make and packed with flavour!
This is a great recipe to make through the week paired with some rice when you do not want to spend ages cooking, however, it is also great when made as part of a larger ‘fakeaway’ style feast along with my Salt & Pepper Mushrooms, Tofu Fried Rice, Salt & Pepper Tofu or Salt and Pepper Chips on a weekend.
I never really thought I would create a recipe incorporating tomato ketchup as a key ingredient but here we are. If you have found yourself on this page because you follow a gluten free diet, make sure you check that the tomato ketchup and white rice vinegar you are using are gluten free. I do not eat meat so tofu is my go to protein source for this dish, however, if you are a meat eater you could try this with chicken instead.
I have included red pepper, red onion and pineapple in the ingredients list, however, if for example you only have a green pepper or a white onion you can substitute those into the recipe instead. You could also throw some mangetout, broccolini or baby corn into this recipe to bulk it up.
Alternatively you could substitute the existing ingredients to use up whatever you have to hand, for example a green pepper instead of red and white onion instead of red.
The sauce itself only needs five ingredients so if you are on the look out for a quick and easy sweet and sour sauce to pour over your chips or add to stir frys then this recipe could easily be adapted. This Sweet and Sour Watermelon does reheat well on the hob but is best eaten fresh!
I have another version of this recipe that uses watermelon rind instead of tofu that I created as part of my zero waste series. If you fancy trying something new you can find my Sweet & Sour Watermelon here. Alternatively, if you like this recipe you may also like my Sweet & Sour Tofu Skewers instead!
