2 tbs Sesame Oil

5 Spring Onions, chopped small

1 cup/240ml Pineapple Juice 

2 tbs Sriracha 

2 tbs Tomato Puree Or Ketchup 

2 tbs Caster Sugar or Maple Syrup 

Pinch Sea Salt 

2 tbs Cornflour, mixed with 4 tbs Water 

Serve with 


Spring Onions, chopped fine 

Add all the sauce ingredients to a small saucepan except for the cornflour + water mixture. Place the pan over a low heat & whisk together well. Leave the sauce to come to a simmer. 

Meanwhile for the tofu, pre heat a non stick frying pan over a medium heat with a little sesame oil. 

Toss the tofu cubes with the cornflour in a mixing bowl then place them into the pan. 

Stir fry the tofu along with the garlic, spring onion & chilli. When tofu is golden add the pineapple cubes & soy sauce. 

Whisk in the cornflour + water mixture to the sauce to thicken it up. 

Add a couple of spoonfuls of sauce to the tofu to glaze it up before serving the sweet & sour tofu on a bed of rice. 

I like to serve the remaining sauce on the side. 

Garnish with a few chopped spring onions & greens of your choice.
