Hawaiian Sweet and Sour

And now for something completely different: a recipe.

  • 1 can chunk pineapple, drained

  • 1 onion

  • 1 large capsicum (sauté slightly)

  • 1 cup tomato sauce

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (added to drained pineapple juice)

  • 1-2 cups firm tofu cut into chunks

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce sprinkled over the tofu chunks

Stir tofu & soy sauce very carefully, then bake in a 350 deg F (175 deg C) oven for 15 minutes. This will firm it up even more & help the flavor to bake in.

Bring to a boil all but the cornstarch mixture & tofu. Stir in cornstarch & heat until thickened.

Add the tofu to the rest just before serving, stirring only gently so the tofu doesn’t break apart.

Serve over (brown) rice.
