Sweet & Spicy Recipe


For the Tofu:

  • 1 Block Extra Firm Tofu
  • ⅓ Cup Cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil for Frying (more if needed)
  • Cooked rice for serving.

For the Sriracha Sauce:

  • 1 Cup Water
  • ¼ Cup Soy Sauce
  • ¼ Cup White Sugar
  • 1 – 3 Tablespoons Sriracha (depending on your spice preference)
  • 3 Cloves Finely Minced Garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons Agave (or to taste)
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch + 2 Tablespoons Water


  1. Drain, rinse, and press the block of tofu for 15 minutes.
  2. Slice the tofu into 1 inch cubes.
  3. Put the cornstarch in a bowl and toss the tofu with the cornstarch in batches making sure each side is coated. Shake off excess and set aside.
  4. Heat oil in a pan and fry the tofu cubes until all sides are browned. About 4 minutes each side.
  5. Drain tofu on paper towel to get rid of excess oil.
  6. In the meantime, mince the garlic, then add it to a sauce pan along with the water, soy sauce, sugar, Sriracha, and agave. Bring to a boil.
  7. In a small bowl or glass, mix the cornstarch and water together. Whisk the cornstarch mixture into the sauce and stir until thickened.
  8. Toss the sauce with the tofu and serve over a bed of rice.
