Black ‘N’ White Tofu

I bought this tofu in tube form (eggless) for a change. My initial idea was to cut it into 7-8 circular sections and arrange to resemble the petal of a flower in a serving plate, garnish with finely chopped carrot or chilli in the centre and some coriander leaves. It can be a stir-fry dish, but I make it into something real simple and easy to whip up at home.

As Tofu is one of the regular items for Vegetarian to obtain our protein, you can change the sauce and way of cooking to make it more interesting. Next, I might be thinking of Tofu with Jade sauce using simple ingredients or using this sauce Mui Fan maybe. You can also use pumpkin to make a sweet or salty sauce to go with it. Or maybe a mango sauce to make Sweet Tofu dessert … so many ways … to enjoy Tofu!

Preparation: 5 mins, Total time: 5 mins

Ingredients (serves 3-4)
 1 tube silken tofu (250g), steamed, drained well cut into 6-8 sections
 some roasted sesame seeds, for garnish
 few slices spring onion or coriander leaves (optional), for garnish
 ¼ fresh red chilli (optional), sliced or finely chopped for garnish

Homemade sauce
 1 tablespoon hot water
 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
 ½ teaspoon vegetarian oyster sauce
 1 teaspoon sesame oil or olive oil

1. Combine all sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
2. Place the tofu on individual serving plates and garnish with chilli, spring onion or coriander leaf and sesame seeds.

Hi Salty

Thank for telling me this, . Sorry to hear this, I am still struggling with the Font in Blogspot (quite limited and I have problem controlling them, it looks different on PC and labtop and the old posts too ...

I am still trying to find the perfect resolution that perfect resolution that will always look its best to suit the majority of your visitors. So far, most resolution fall under 1024x768 and 1081x1024 ...

One way out is to zoom in/out to change the font on the screen.

Last weekend I tried steam Tofu with mixture of light soy sauce, vegetarian oyster sauce, sesame oil with dried mushrooms. Simple & delicious. I think dried mushroom taste best when steamed. :-)

Hi Sunny

Yes, Dried Mushroom does have their own characteristic … especially if able to get those good qualities ones …

I still haven’t learn how to differentiate those dried mushroom and their uses yet … it can be real interesting …

Do you see steamed tofu like what you mentioned at any vegetarian stalls (mix rice stall?)as you have so gone to so many different veg stalls … So far, it is quite standardize but sometime simple dish can be super delicious.

I haven’t seen silken tofu with olive veg (which I had in one veg restaurant) or spicy soy sauce for tofu (Korean style) yet … these are simple to cook too.

Cheers :)
