Recipe for Sweet And Sour Tofu


    Sweet and Sour Tofu

    1 (20 ounce) container tofu
    1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks or tidbits
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar

    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 medium onion, sliced thin

    Drain tofu in a colander, then weigh down tofu with something heavy. Let it sit in the sink while preparing the sauce.

    Combine brown sugar, cornstarch, vinegar, soy sauce and juice from the pineapple in a saucepan. Bring to a boil until thick and clear.

    Slice tofu into cubes and add to sauce; marinate while rice cooks or 1 hour.
