Sweet and Sour Tofu

Yield: 4

Sweet and Sour Tofu

Normally anything that is fried and has the word ‘sweet’ in the title, we steer away from. We did our best to modify this traditional dish and made it a little better. This is a little more work than our normal dishes, which is probably why I waited so long to make it. But I was glad I did because it was really good and something a little different.

Ingredients

2 cups broccoli (chopped)

½ cup almonds (raw) (sliced)

1 cup brown rice

1 package organic firm tofu (drained and cubed)

2 tsp Ener-G Egg Replacer (with 4 tsp water)

2 Tbsp sesame seeds

¼ cup cornstarch

¼ cup coconut oil

3 ½ Tbsp rice vinegar

2 Tbsp xylitol

2 tsp tamari

2 tsp ketchup (sugar free)

1 tsp sugar free syrup
