Serve this delicious Asian-inspired vegetarian dish over white rice and garnished with ultra-thin slices of fresh green onion.


  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 large red pepper, sliced
  • 1 large green pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1, 20-ounce can pineapple chunks with juice
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 pounds firm tofu, diced


  1. Mix together the 1/2 cup of vegetable broth, soy sauce and cornstarch in a small bowl.
  2. Place the butter in a large sauté pan over medium-low heat. Once melted, add the onion, bell peppers, ginger, salt and red pepper. Stir to coat with the butter, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes.
