I feel like I just said hello to March not too long ago and we’re now heading to April next week. Time flies!
I recently discovered this healthy (ahem…when did I ever make something healthy?), easy-to-make tofu dish but surprisingly delicious and tasted like authentic chinese food.
This dish is originally called black pepper tofu by Ottolenghi (yes, him again from his cookbook called Plenty).
This recipe can also be found here at Saveur. I revised the recipe a bit to make it kid friendly and substituted the ingredients I have on hand. My version is very mild in spice (ingredients could be easily adjusted to your preference) but still very tasty.
Sauté small thinly sliced onion, 12 crushed cloves of garlics, and 3 tbsp of finely chopped ginger in 6 tbsp of butter (or 11 tbsp of butter in the original recipe) until soft and aromatic.
Add the sauce in the pan, then fried tofu. Season with black pepper. Stir until sauce is thicken. Stir green onions. Serve over rice.
My husband said this is the best tofu he ever eaten. And my not-so-food-adventurous parents enjoyed this.
See you all at the Fiesta Friday at The Novice Gardener ! 😉
