Thai Tofu

Maybe I haven't been properly introduced to Thai food, but I'm not a fan of it. However, I did try some Thai Sweet Chili Sauce and was won over. So then began the process to search out anything to put this luscious sauce on.

I used:
1/2 block of firm tofu, turn off into chunks, pan-fried in 1 Tbsp of grapeseed oil
Diced onion
Diced green pepper
Chunks of zucchini
2 Tbsp Thai Sweet Chili Sauce

Fry tofu until golden brown and slightly crispy. Add veggies til soft. Add 1 Tbsp of chili sauce to simmer in for a minute.

Serve with a side of brown rice (3/4 C). Pour the other tablespoon of sauce over the top. Chow down!

I know that looks like a lot but thats a dinner (or lunch) that won't leave you wanting a snack!

Oh yes! I like tofu and I made usually somekind of (wery)spicy wok-dishes, so I think that sweet-chilisauce works really good also in those wok-meals which I have done. Your portion looks wery yummy!
