A sweet, slightly spicy glazed tofu. Modified from http://veganyumyum.com/2008/06/sweet-chili-lime-tofu-with-wok-steamed-collards-and-quinoa/.

Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Chili Lime Tofu

1 lb tofu
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce)
1 3/4 tbsp fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp lime zest
1/2 tsp red chili
1 clove garlic, pressed, optional
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 g mint leaves (4 leaves), shredded

Recipe Directions for Sweet Chili Lime Tofu

Cut the tofu into whatever shapes you desire (1 cm thick triangles work well), and pan fry until golden brown (the original recipe says to dry fry without oil, but I haven't been able to pull this off). Whisk together the remaining ingredients and mix until sugar is dissolved. Turn up the heat to high, pour the sauce over the tofu, and stir to coat. Cook until the sauce bubbles up and glazes the tofu. Serve with a cooked grain or pasta, and steamed leafy greens.
