Step 1

Place the tofu cubes in a bowl or shallow dish.

Step 2

Add the marinade ingredients (2 tbsp of tamari and 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar), stir and let rest for at least 5 minutes, preferably overnight.

Step 3

Drain the tofu and discard the marinade.

Step 4

Transfer 1/3 of the tofu cubes to a freezer or plastic bag with 2 tbsp of cornstarch and toss to coat. Repeat this step with the rest of the tofu cubes and cornstarch. Add more cornstarch if needed.

Step 5

Once the tofu cubes are coated with the cornstarch, heat some oil in a skillet and add the tofu cubes. I used extra virgin olive oil, but any oil will do.

Step 6

Cook the tofu cubes over medium-high heat until all sides are golden brown. Remove the tofu from the skillet and set aside.

Step 7

Add the garlic to the skillet (add more oil if needed) and cook over medium-high heat for about 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently until golden brown. Set aside.

Step 8

Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl (tamari or soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, vegetable stock or water, sugar, cornstarch and red pepper flakes). Set aside.

Step 9

Add the sauce to the skillet where you had your cooked garlic and cook over medium-high heat until it thickens, stirring frequently.

Step 10

Finally, add the tofu cubes, stir and cook for 1 to 2 more minutes.

Step 11

Serve with some cooked white rice and garnish with some sesame seeds and chopped chives (optional). Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
