This Jersey Girl Style Tofu takes sweet and spicy to a whole new level. Tine to up your game, this is 100% delicious! Our Bee Sweet sauce contains honey, so it is not vegan. Don't sweat it though, there is a vegan option at the end.

Sprinkle cornstarch over tofu (use extra if needed) and toss in bowl until evenly coated.
Making the Sauce
Mix the 1C of water, soy sauce, garlic & sugar in a pot and bring to slow boil. Add in 1 TBSP of Jersey Girl Bee Sweet Hot Sauce and taste. Add more until desired spice level is reached. We like it real spicy, but you can always add more at the end.
In a small bowl, mix the 2 TBSP of water and 2 TBSP of cornstarch and pour into the boiling pot and whisk until thickens. Reduce heat and set aside.
Pan Fry Tofu
In a frying pan or cast iron skillet, heat the oil on med / high heat and coat the pan so oil is evenly distributed. Add the tofu, but allow space in between so they do not touch.
Sear for approximately 5-6 minutes until crispy. We recommend moving the tofu around slightly to avoid any sticking. Flip Tofu over and cook another 4-5 minutes until the entire tofu nugget looks crispy. Remove from the pan and drain in a paper towel.
Warm up the sauce and toss with the tofu before serving. Garnish with the pumpkin seeds and serve over warm rice, farrow, grains and steamed veggies.
