Soft Tofu With Chilli & Spring Onion
I always know what to order when this dish is on the menu. I found a top recipe in a book named "The food of China" by Murdoch Books. I love it because it is healthy, low in carbs, sipmle to create and it is authentic. This recipe sets off the soft, cool smoothness of the tofu by adding a hot, highly spiced dressing. Great for lunch by itself or dinner served with rice and steamed greens. Wine Match: A German riesling ( Dr Loosen Dry Riesling is great) or a Spanish Tempranillo or Rioja.
