    1

    Press and drain the block of tofu by removing the tofu from the container and placing in a tofu press for 15 minutes or by wrapping with towels, or paper towels, and placing it on a cutting board with a heavy book (a cookbook works well here) or weight on top for 30 minutes.

    2

    Prep the vegetables by dicing your onion and cutting the carrot into even pieces.

    3

    Assemble the sauce by combining water, soy sauce, sugar, Sriracha, and honey into a small pot over medium-low heat and whisk to combine.

    4

    Taste for seasoning and add more Sriracha according to taste.

    5

    Remove pressed tofu and pat dry.

    6

    Cut tofu into bite sized pieces.

    7

    Lightly coat tofu in cornstarch by adding the two to a bag and shaking them gently or dipping the tofu and brushing off excess.
