Sweet and Sour Tofu Balls
2 (14 ounce) blocks firm tofu, squeezed and crumbled
1 (6 ounce) can water chestnuts, chopped
3 green onions, minced
1/2 cup parsley, minced
drop soy sauce
pepper, to taste
oil, as needed for frying
flour, as needed for dusting
2 cups vinegar
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
1. Add tofu to water chestnuts, green onions, and parsley. Add soy sauce and crushed black pepper. Mush together. Put oil in a deep bottomed pan and heat.
2. Roll tofu mix into balls and roll in flour. Fry until golden and place on paper towels to drain. Meanwhile, combine the vinegar and vegan sugar in saucepan and heat until dissolved (stinky here).
3. Add the remaining ingredients. Once sauce ingrediants are all mixed up and heated, throw the balls in, simmer for a while to heat.
Serve 4 or more balls per person. Over rice this stuff is filling and a bit fattening too, but it's yummy!
