Sweet and Sour Tofu Recipe

I just saw this recipe in one of my BF’s recipe book in there house. His mother is a great cook (according to him) and always the one preparing food for them ever-since. And his been encouraging me to eat tofu because It is high in protein, low in saturated fats and a good source of calcium as well as vitamin E. It is also cholesterol free (according to him), I’m not into health conscious or health food stuff as long as it’s edible and I like the taste it’s fine with me unlike my BF who is very strict about what food he eats. Just sharing the good stuff in life. A delicious and healthy food for you and your family and it’s affordable.
