We had some fried tofu bits in the fridge that I felt like using.
The great thing about these is that they were ready battered and were crispy. Reminded me of a sweet and sour pork I used to have when I was still into eating animals. I really like that crispyness.
I fried up some spring onions, carrots and chopped ginger to soften them first.
Now, the sweet and sour effect depends on getting enough sweet, and enough sour into the recipe. Seems obvious, but really.
Pineapple is a great food that is already both sweet and sour. Yellow pepper is nice and sweet. These ingredients were chopped and added raw after the cooked ingredients were cooked.
Tomatoes give sourness, as does a generous squeeze of lemon. Finally for extra sweetness I added one smallish apple. All of these ingredients were blended together raw as the sauce for this dish.
Add the tofu and some noodles, and mix the sauce with the rest taking care that the raw ingredients don’t get cooked (this is for health most of all, but I also happen to like the taste more).
