Steamed Tofu With Salted Egg

by Angie Liew
Tofu is a somewhat divisive food. You either love it or dislike it.  I believe the reason some people dislike tofu isn’t really a matter of taste, but one of texture. Also it’s known that tofu is only as flavorful as what it’s served with. This may be true to an extent.  However the cooking method used to prepare the tofu has just as much an impact.

 

There are many ways to cook tofu. Here, I have chosen to steam tofu. Steaming is one of simplest way to prepare tofu.  Instead of chewy, the tofu becomes ” pillowy” , especially when steam until just cooked through.  So enjoy!
