Tofu doesn't have to be boring. For your meatlessmonday try this crispy-sticky-spicy-sweet-tangy tofu that is bursting with flavor. It's quick and easy enough to do on a crazed day and mimics a deep fry, producing crispy cubes that stay soft and fluffy in the center. The sauce itself is delicious for noodles, as a marinade for meat, a wing glaze, dipping sauce or even as a salad dressing!
