Sweet and Sticky Tofu Recipe- Gluten Free, Vegan, Easy, and Delicious

My kids aren't the hugest fans of tofu. Plain, that is. They refer to it as a white sponge. But if it's prepared with lots of flavor, as in this recipe, they definitely appreciate it. 

I made this tofu recipe based on my sweet and sticky green beans recipe and used it for poke bowls and my family devoured it. This is a great way to give bland tofu a flavor oomph. 

It's gluten free and vegan and easy to make as well. Feel free to use it as is, or as a side dish, or as an addition to salads, etc. Be creative. It's delicious.

Oh, did I mention it's really easy too?
