Sweet and Sticky Tofu. A delicious, sweet, sticky tofu dish with a slight crunch. It's easy to make and a great side dish to any meal.
This has become my most favourite way to eat tofu! It is so simple and the ingredients are quite few compared to other sticky tofu recipes.
My sticky tofu recipe calls for just 7 ingredients and 30 minutes of your time! These sticky tofu bites pair so well with steamed rice and your favourite leafy green.
What makes my version sticky is the blend of ketchup, honey, cornstarch, and water. The blending of the cornstarch and water is really the key to getting a thick sticky sauce that will cover over your tofu so it won't slide off.
My version is also a little crispy too to give sticky Asian tofu recipe a scrumptious texture that will keep you coming back for more.
This sweet sticky tofu recipe is a delicious and easy meal for #meatlessmonday! I hope you give it a try and also check out my other tofu recipes below.

Partnership with Sunrise Soyganic
I've partnered with Sunrise Soya Foods to bring you this recipe! I love their Soyganic Tofu because it's organic and it always tastes delicious!
Both their Sunrise and Soyganic tofu products are great at absorbing sauces like my sweet sticky sauce! In addition, their tofu comes in a variety of textures, from Extra Firm to Medium Firm to Soft. They even have a tasty smoked version, which I am a big fan of!
Tofu is a great ingredient because you can marinate it or season with a dry rub, easily elevating the taste of it! Making it a great weeknight meal option.

454 grams Soyganic Extra Firm Tofu, sliced into bite size pieces
4 tbsp cornstarch

2 tbsp soy sauce

How to make Sweet and Sticky Tofu
Slice your tofu into long bite size pieces. Pat them dry with a paper towel.
In a small bowl, mix together only 3 tbsp of cornstarch (reserving 1 tbsp for later) and salt.
Coat your tofu pieces in the cornstarch mixture. This will make the tofu more crispy.
In another bowl, mix together soy sauce, ketchup, honey, water and 1 tbsp cornstarch until well combined. Set aside.
Then in a non-stick pan set over medium high heat, add avocado oil. Pan fry your tofu until golden crispy brown on all sides, about 10-15 minutes.
Lower your heat to low setting. Then pour in your sauce and gently mix in with the tofu. Once each tofu piece is covered in sauce, serve immediately. Enjoy!
