Sweet and spicy tofu

Last night, I decided to make sweet and spicy tofu for dinner. I started off by cutting the tofu into cubes, then dredging it in cornstarch to help give it a crispy coating. Next, I made the sauce, which is one of my favorite homemade sauces. I chopped up lots of fresh ginger, and added it to a pan with rice vinegar, soy sauce, sriracha sauce, a little sugar, and some water. This went on the stove to simmer while I cooked the tofu and broccoli.

The tofu went into a pan with a little peanut oil to sauté and get browned and crispy on the outside. Usually I am not patient enough to let the tofu get crispy enough, but I was last night. Yeah! Next the tofu went to the side while I steamed the broccoli.

While the broccoli was steaming, I added some cornstarch dissolved in water to the sauce to make it thick and yummy. I added the tofu back to the pan, and then mixed in the spicy sauce.

The broccoli and tofu absorbed all the sauce, and it was super yummy over brown rice!
