Lemon No Honey Tofu

Hi everyone, just dropping by with another recipe, this one is delicious and is another fake out favourite. Sweet lemony and a little salty. Lets dive into what your going to need. I found a nice quality lemon makes all the difference for this dish as you will get more sweetness out of it than you realise, however if you can only get your hands on a standard one, taste the sauce and be sure to adjust to taste. 

1 packet of firm tofu 
2tsp cornflour
1tsp neutral oil
1 lemon juice and zest 
2tbs soy sauce 
1tbs maple syrup/agave syrup 
1/2cup veggie stock 
2 cloves of garlic minced  
2tsp cornflour mixed with water 

to serve (optional)
one head of broccoli steamed tender 
zest of lemon
spring onions 
wedge of lemon 

Cut tofu into cubes and coat in 2tsp of cornflour heat a pan over a medium heat and add the oil you want it nice and hot to get some colour on the tofu. Fry over medium until colour forms then flip over onto other side and repeat until tofu is cooked. Place on some kitchen roll and move onto the sauce, place all ingredients aside from the cornflour mixture into the same pan and bring sauce to medium heat until sauce bubbles, add in cornflour mixture and reduce heat to low and leave thicken, you don't want this sauce too thick i think its nicer a little thinner. Place tofu back in pan and coat in sauce. Serve with options from above or whatever else you like. 

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, if do decide to make this be sure to tag me over on social media i love looking at your recreations! Until next time, Helen xx
