Tofu Avocado Salad

Have you tried the combination of tofu and avocado? No. I high recommend it. Well, the truth is I was quite sceptical for this combination myself at the very beginning. I think it’s just weird. However, I know soy sauce goes well with both tofu and avocado. One of my favourite ways of having avocado is with soy sauce, lemon juice and fresh ground black pepper. Back to Tofu and avocado! The only question left was whether tofu and avocado can compliment each other. Well, there is only one way to find out, right? Since it’s a cold dish, I just need to chop everything and make a dressing. I decided to go for soy sauce and mustard with honey. I also added a little bit of roasted almonds. I think pinenuts would be nice too. I love fried onion. You probably have seen fried onion in some of my recipes already. It just adds more rich flavour to the dish. INGREDIENTS: Soft or Silk tofu – 350g Avocado – 1 Green onion – 1 …

Broccoli Tofu Bites

I have to say these are yummy and healthy. I made two batches last week. My husband loved it. He had some for dinner and then popped two more in his lunch box. Normally, he is not a big fan for broccoli and tofu. This recipe has three of my favourite ingredients. Broccoli is full of fiber and vitamins, and Tofu is a good source of protein, iron and calcium. Then, there is the black rice/Forbidden rice, which is packed with antioxidants and fiber. (Fiber! The more the better! 🙂 ) I reckon it’s another way to eat more vegetables and tofu. I used store-bought tea infused firm tofu. You can just use firm tofu instead if you can’t find one. They are super easy to make. If you have a food processor or a blender, it will do all the work for you. My food processor is not big enough, so I just let it chop everything for me. Then, I mixed it in a bowl with a spoon. I used a baking tray to bake …

Black Rose Tea Infused Tofu

Tofu is a good source of protein, iron and calcium. It has a lot of health benefits. Although it doesn’t have much taste, tofu absorbs the flavours from other ingredients very well when you cook it. That’s the way to make tofu tasty. One of my favourites is black tea infused Tofu. It can be prepared beforehand and stored in the fridge. You can use it in salad, some stir-fry dishes, grill it, or just eat it directly cold. The taste is quite mild with a light tea flavour. You only need few ingredients to cook this marinated tofu, cinnamon bark, Star anise, bay leaves, and tea of your choice. I used black rose tea this time, which had strong rose aroma. It turned out quite well. Feel free to add some other spices you like. Some dry chilli flakes maybe if you like spicy food. Tofu has high water content. If you have time, it would be great to press some water out of tofu. I didn’t have much time. What I did was that I …
