Steamed stuffed tofu: silky, soft tofu floating in soy sauce
I really like tofu. I know there are people who can’t stand the texture or the taste, but I think it’s quite a versatile ingredient. In fact, I have a whole cookbook just featuring tofu recipes (thank you, Little Tokyo Service Center). Tofu tastes good stir-fried or deep-fried (that’s the way I like my stinky tofu; fried with a bit of dipping sauce).
One of my favorite recipes, though, is stuffed tofu (shrimp is ideal). I actually used to make a similar version at home, digging out the top of the tofu and putting in a fish mixture in the cavity. There’s something really simple but tasty about the stuffed tofu dish; I think it’s the combination of the silky texture with the flavorful sauce.
What’s a favorite simple dish that you enjoy?
