Equipment

  • Mixing bowl
  • Large non-stick frying pan

Ingredients

For the sauce

  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 6 tbsp Del Monte® Pineapple juice from the can of Del Monte® Pineapple Chunks inJuice mentioned in the main ingredient list below)
  • 3 tbsp tomato puree
  • 4 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed or finely grated
  • dried chilli flakes a pinch for taste

Tofu and vegetables

  • 280 g extra-firm tofu
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 435 g Del Monte® Pineapple Chunks in Juice (1 can) drained, juice reserved
  • 1 yellow pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper thinly sliced
  • spring onions thinly sliced, to serve

Method

  • Mix the sauce ingredients together thoroughly and set aside.
  • Cut the block of tofu into small cubes. Put in a mixing bowl and sprinkle over the cornflour and plenty of salt and pepper. Toss together with your hands so that the tofu is coated in the cornflour.
  • Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a fairly high heat. Add the tofu and cook for about 6 minutes, tossing now and again, or until golden and crisp. Remove from the pan with a spatula, leaving the oil in the pan, and put on kitchen paper to drain.
  • Keeping the pan over a medium-high heat, add the pineapple chunks. Let them cook for 3-4 minutes, tossing once or twice, so they start to take on some colour.
  • Add the sliced peppers and cook for another 5 minutes or so, stirring or tossing now and again, until softened. Tip the sauce into the pan and stir with the pineapple and pepper. Cook for a couple of minutes so that the sauce is bubbling and reduced but not cooked away to nothing.
  • Spoon rice into 3-4 bowls. Divide the peppers and pineapple between the bowls, then add the crispy tofu. Sprinkle with thinly sliced spring onion and serve.
