Thai Sweet Chili Tofu Stacks Recipe

By Veegs

🔪Prep Time: 30 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes


1 tablespoon cornstarch

½ cup rice vinegar

½ cup coconut sugar

1 chili pepper, such as jalapeño or cayenne, chopped fine

2 cloves garlic, chopped fine

2 teaspoons tamari

½ teaspoon chopped parsley

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

8 ounces extra-firm tofu, drained, pressed, and cut into 1-inch cubes

1 8-ounce can sliced pineapple


1Prepare the sauce by mixing the cornstarch and 1 tablespoon of water together until smooth and set aside.

2Add the rice vinegar, ⅔ cup water, sugar, chili pepper, garlic, tamari, parsley, and cayenne pepper to a food processor. Process until well blended and the chili pepper is broken up very well.

3Pour mixture into a small saucepan and heat until boiling, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Turn down heat and cook 5 minutes. Add the cornstarch mixture and stir occasionally for about 5 minutes or until mixture is a bit thickened. Take off heat and let it cool.

4Add the tofu cubes to the cooled sweet chili sauce. Let marinate about 30 minutes.

5Drain the pineapple and slice the rings into about 1- to 1¼-inch wedges.

6Place a slice of pineapple on a plate and center a cube of marinated tofu on top. Place another slice of pineapple on the tofu and secure with a toothpick.
