Crispy Sweet and Sour Tofu

I know I've posted a picture of this before, but today for lunch I made Vegan YumYum's Crispy Sweet and Sour Tofu again. So good! It's a very easy dish to prepare-- most of the time spent preparing it is draining/pressing the tofu.

This time we served it over quinoa, and since I had a can of unsweetened pineapple rings, I threw those in with the last of our 3 lb. bag of almonds (thanks to Nancy, Phil's mom! we got a lot of use from those). If you make this (and you should), throw in whatever you are adding near of the end of a tofu's frying time. If that makes sense. You might also want to drain everything of the copious amounts of oil used by laying it on a paper grocery bag. This helps a lot.

In other news, Lauren Graham is filming in Philly again, and this time I saw her! Last time my friend and co-worker Jeni helped her when she came to Whole Foods, and I think I spent about 2 hours grilling her about the experience (sorry Jeni!). Today, Phil and I saw her by the movie set (2 blocks from our apartment!) and I spilled coffee all over myself, I was so excited. He made fun of me a lot. I don't know why, but I really like Lauren Graham. Or, I do know why, cause she's awesome.

Then we got a whole lot of produce (really, a lot) from the Italian Market for only $7. Ah, Philadelphia.

It looks great, really, it doesn't even look like tofu (mind me, I like tofu, but it's not very photogenic...)

Lauren Graham is awesome! I used to watch Gilmore Girls religiously and she was great in Bad Santa.


I just made the same thing tonight.
This was sooooo good!

I love sweet and sour! mine always comes out bright red though, I like your coloring and flavoring better.
