Hot and Sour Broiled Tofu

 Hot_Sour_Tofu_Plated

This is a modification of a recipe from Averiecooks.com: Hot and Sour Broiled Tofu that my wife asked me to tweak for her.

Ingredients:

    • 16 oz. Tofu pressed (Cut into 12-16 slices)
    • Juice from 1 medium orange
    • 3 tbsp. Jalapenos diced (I used jar slices)
    • 1/2 cup Water
    • 4 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
    • 4 Stevia Packets
    • 1/4 tsp. Cayenne pepper
    • 2 tsp. Corn Starch

Directions:

  1. If you have not already done so, press your tofu for at least 30 min.  This is important if you don’t want runny tofu.
  2. Wisk together all ingredients except the tofu.
  3. Pour into a sauce pan and put on stove at med-high heat. (Gas may vary since I did mine on electric.)
  4. Stir regularly if not constantly once it gets close to boiling.
  5. Boil until it starts to thicken.  (If you are familiar with the original recipe we are replacing the pepper jelly with this mixture.)
  6. Take off stove and cool for a few min till it is a little more thick.
  7. While waiting line a cookie sheet with baking paper.
  8. Take slices of Tofu and dip into the marinade, once covered place on cookie sheet.  You should have something that looks like this:Hot_Sour_Tofu_Before
  9. Set the oven to broil and let the tofu sit for 15 min to let the flavor soak into the tofu.
  10. Place tofu in the oven on the 2nd shelf down from the top.
  11. Broil for 5 min and then watch the tofu constantly and turn cookie sheet if it starts to look un-even.  The marinade should be bubbling/caramelizing on the top of the tofu.
  12. Remove from oven after about 2-5 more min depending on how brown you want it. It should look like this:    Hot_Sour_Tofu_After
  13. Let cool for a couple min so you don’t burn your mouth on the delicious flavor.  I suggest adding some steamed broccoli, it was delicious!
