Vegetarian Steamed Tofu



It's been a month since my colleagues and I ordered our vegetarian set lunch. The catered vegetarian meal is solely based on vegetables and tofu, no MSG and with very less processed food. Throughout the catering, I got some inspiration to cook more vegetarian dish at home. This is one of them.

Vegetarian Steamed Tofu
Serves 2


Ingredients:
1 block of tofu
1 tomato, diced
1 dried mushroom, soaked and thinly sliced
a thumb-sized Sze Chuan preserved vegetable, soaked, drained and cut into strips

Seasoning:
1 tbsp of plum sauce
1 tbsp of light soy sauce

Garnishing:
1 red and 1 green bird's eye chili, chopped

Steps:
1. Cut the tofu into pieces, and arrange on a heat-proof plate.
2. Arrange tomato, preserved vegetable and mushroom surrounding the plates.
3. Pour the seasonings over the ingredients.
4. Steam it over boiling water for 5 minutes.
5. Garnish the tofu with bird's eye chili, and serve hot with rice.

This is superb! It justshow you how easy it really is to make tasty vegan food that will satisfy even the pickiest meat eaters, so if one day you need to cook for a vegan or decide you’d like to eat less meat and incorporate vegan food in your diet, you’ll know exactly what to do.
