Broccoli Almond Sweet and Sour Tofu

Broccoli Almond Tofu

If you’re thinking about making the crispy sweet and sour tofu, may I suggest that you turn it into a meal by adding some brown rice, sliced almonds, and broccoli?

When the tofu is almost done frying, dump 1/4 – 1/2 cup sliced almonds on top so they fall into the oil. As SOON as they start to turn color, take it off the heat and drain the oil. In my experience, almonds taste burnt before they look burnt, so don’t let them sit in the oil forever.

Transfer the tofu and almonds into a large bowl and add some steamed broccoli – 1-2 cups or to your liking. Toss with the sweet and sour sauce and serve over rice.

I promise my next post won’t be fried tofu. Promise!

    Nikki – I know, right? Broccoli is SO our default vegetable, but it goes soo well with this sort of thing anyway. Yay broccoli!

    Rachel – Thanks for your kind comment! I guess you could say that I”m self taught… I took photography in high school? Haha, that’s all I got. :)

    the almonds were a great idea–much better than the peanuts i would have thought to have added! my non-vegan bf and i made this tonight, and it was a hit!

    Wow – I just came across your blog and you have truly inspired me. I am not much of a cook at all (my husband is a FANTASTIC one and a carnivore deluxe to boot) and I thought I would give this recipe a try. It turned out great, we both loved it. Thank you for posting it and thank you for giving me the motivation to try something in the kitchen! I am going to see what else I can do now…
