Sticky Tofu: A Delicious and easy vegan recipe everyone should try

As it’s National Tofu Day thought I’d share a simple recipe. One would think it is chicken the way it looks. I have tried tofu before and made a stir fry. It was alright but think it’s mostly how it’s cooked. It’s great in stews and curries. I love anything sweet and sticky (done right). So why not make my own? It does have a kick to it due to the chilli flakes.

This eco-friendly ingredient has taken the world by storm in the last decade. Predominantly used in a lot of pan Asian, and Thai dishes it has grown in the western world and become extremely popular in the vegan community. A meat substitute high in calcium and iron. Cheap and can be use in a few versatile ways. If your looking to add plant-based ingredients into your diet this is a great start. So hope you enjoy the recipe.

3 Tbsp, Honey
