I came across this simple sweet chilli lime tofu dish online at the Vegan Yum Yum blog. Great reviews on the blog along with the fact that the sauce ingredients were already in my pantry made me want to try it out right away. I ended up increasing the amount of garlic and mint in the sauce and adding baby bok choy and mushrooms (or broccoli) which enhanced the overall flavor of the dish. I also like my tofu dishes contain more sauce, so that the tofu and vegetables really soak in all the flavors, so I decided to double the amount in this dish. I personally find that tofu cut into smaller cube shapes work better in terms of retaining the flavor of the sauce. The result was delicious…just the perfect amount of sweetness, chilli, and lime! I also Serve it over a bed of cooked quiona or brown rice and you have yourself a great healthy meal!
This is also a great dish for toddlers. You can cut the tofu into smaller pieces and omit the chili flakes if your toddler cannot handle the spice.
