Sweet and Sour Corn with Cherry Tomatoes and Tofu
A quick saute of sweet and sour corn with cherry tomatoes and fried tofu - perfect for weeknight meals!
Yield: 4 servings
  • 4 large garlic cloves, grated
  • 2 red chili peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1½ tbsp soy sauce
  • 1½ tsp grated ginger
  • 1½ tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1½ tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1½ tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 lb extra firm tofu, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • sea salt, to taste
  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels (from 3 ears corn)
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, chiles, soy sauce, ginger, lime juice, sesame oil, fish sauce, and honey. Set aside.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet or wok over high heat for 5 minutes. Add the peanut oil and allow it to heat for 30 seconds, then add the tofu. Let the tofu cook for 2-3 minutes to allow it to sear. Toss and fry for another 2-3 minutes, or until the tofu is browned on most sides. Transfer the tofu to a plate and season with sea salt, to taste.
  3. Add the corn, scallions, and tomatoes to the skillet. Stir fry until they start to soften, 1-2 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce mixture and cook for another minute to allow the flavors to meld. Add the tofu back to the skillet and spoon the sauce and corn over it.
  4. Serve over a bed of brown rice or your choice of whole grains.
