Black ‘N’ White Tofu

Posted by Admin on Food & Drinks

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!
