Ingredients

20 ounces pineapple, canned with juice
chunks or tidbits, 1 can
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons soy sauce, sodium reduced
1 tablespoon brown sugar, light
14 ounces tofu
extra-firm water-packed, drained, rinsed and cut into 1/2-inch cubes, 1 package
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons canola oil
divided
2 tablespoons garlic
minced
1 tablespoon ginger
minced
1 large sweet red bell peppers
cut into 1/2-by-2-inch strips
1 large green bell peppers
cut into 1/2-by-2-inch strips

Directions

Drain and set aside pineapple, reserving ¼ cup of the juice.

Whisk the reserved pineapple juice, vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce and sugar in a medium bowl until smooth.

Place tofu in a large bowl; toss with 3 tablespoons of the sauce. Let marinate for at least 5 minutes and up to 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, add cornstarch to the remaining sauce and whisk until smooth.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Transfer the tofu to the pan using a slotted spoon; whisk any remaining marinade into the bowl of reserved sauce.

Cook the tofu, stirring every 1 to 2 minutes, until golden brown, 7 to 9 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.

Add the remaining oil to the pan and heat over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add red and green peppers and cook, stirring often, until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in the reserved sauce and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 30 seconds.

Add the tofu and pineapple and cook, stirring gently, until heated through, about 2 minutes more.
