Golden Tofu Patties from the Veganopolis Cookbook, with Sweet Chili Sauce (recipe below)
The sweet chili sauce I made was adapted from a recipe in The Asian Vegan Kitchen. That recipe used more sugar and more chilies, and plum sauce. This sauce, I think, is a bit thinner and milder, but the apples and the spices in the applesauce gave it amazing complexity. Grated ginger would be nice here too. I think this sauce would go great with many other mild fried Asian foods as well.
Sweet Chili Sauce
(adapted from the asian vegan kitchen)
3 fresh chilies, seeded and chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 c applesauce (mine was spiced with cinnamon and cloves, but still ok)
3 TB sugar
1/4 c water
2 TB rice vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
Blend everything together (except sesame seeds). Simmer on stove for two minutes, then let cool. Add sesame seeds. Makes about 1 c.
