Stir-Fried Sweet Chili Tofu

This tofu dish was a spontaneous cooking session. Unplanned and a completely accidental success. For the past few months I’ve been opting for oven baked tofu that I was just really getting tired of after having it almost every day since popping blocks of marinated  tofu cubes in the oven while i do other things was the easiest way to cook it without having to use a pan and additional utensils.

  1. Dry the tofu and cut into cubes. I wrap the tofu in towels and place a plate on top of it until excess liquid is absorbed by the towels. 
  2. Sprinkle the salt on the tofu cubes. Add the cornstarch. Coat the tofu well.
  3. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the sauce.
