Daily Vegan Lunch for 2 August, 2013: Hot and Sour Tofu

INGREDIENTS:

1 brick of firm tofu, about 13 ounces

1 tablespoon oil
2 cloves garlic
1.5 cups onion, sliced
1 green onion, chopped

hot and sour vegan tofu

SAUCE INGREDIENTS:

1 Tablespoon white or rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1 Tablespoon tomato paste
1 Tablespoon ketchup
1 Tablespoon chili sauce OR 2 teaspoons Sriacha or tabasco or to taste

DIRECTIONS:

Mix the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl, set aside. Drain the tofu. Slice it into 1/4 inch steaks. Pat tofu slices dry on both sides with a clean towel or paper towels. In a heavy skillet, heat the oil on medium-high heat. Add the tofu and fry on both sides until golden brown, about 3 – 5 minutes. Add garlic and sliced onion to the pan with tofu and fry them until the onions are slightly browned, 2 minutes. Turn heat down to low-medium, add sauce and green onions.
