First off, thanks to Anjali, from The Picky Eater blog for inviting me to be her guest blogger last week! I have been a follower of the Picky Eater Blog for a while, and was thrilled to be able to do a guest post over at her site! When I first had the pleasure of connecting with Anjali more than a year ago, I found out that we had a few things in common. Not only does she have an amazing food blog that continues to inspire me on many levels, but she coincidentally has the same name and also graduated from UC Berkeley! She is a very sweet, down to earth person and has been a tremendous help ever since I first re-launched my own site. When Anjali asked me if I had any good Thai dishes, I was excited to share my version of Sweet & Sour Vegetable Tofu on her blog.
Thai food is a staple at my house and is a family favorite. I love re-creating healthy, vegetarian versions of our favorite Thai dishes at home. This colorful dish consists of tofu, pan-fried with a small amount of oil to give it that extra texture needed to absorb the sauce without the added fat of deep-frying. I also added some pineapple chunks and fresh vegetables such as broccoli, bell peppers, mushrooms, and onions. The juice from the pineapple chunks help balance the flavors of sweet and tart, and the actual pineapple pieces make for a perfect addition to the fresh veggies and tofu. The sauce is comprised mainly of every day ingredients and is extremely easy to make.
My husband has always been a huge fan of Sweet & Sour Thai dishes at restaurants, and he absolutely loved the tangy-sweet flavor of this homemade version with a side of some brown rice. The dish left my entire family wanting more, even the kids.
