Ingredients:

Preparation:

1. Coat tofu cubes in flour then dip in beaten eggs. Dip in breadcrumbs.
2. Fry the coated tofu in hot oil until golden brown. Set aside to drain on a tray lined with paper towels to remove excess oil.
3. In a separate pan, heat oil. Sauté the onions, green and red bell peppers and DEL MONTE Pineapple Tidbits then set aside.
4. Add the DEL MONTE Quick 'n Easy Barbecue Marinade, reserved pineapple syrup, and cornstarch mixture.
5. Cook until thickened. Toss in the cooked tofu. Serve.

Chef’s Tip:

To add texture to the tofu, use Japanese breadcrumbs instead of ordinary breadcrumbs. Japanese breadcrumbs are coarser which will contrast nicely against the silken tofu.
