Soft Tofu With Chilli & Spring Onion
From: Sommelier

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.

SERVES 4 , 4 plates

  • 250 g soft tofu, drained
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons coriander, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 80 ml peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

serve with rice or steamed greens

Cut the tofu into cubes and put it on a heatproof plate.

scatter the spring onion, chilli, corriander and soy sauce over the tofu.

Put the oils into a small saucepan and heat until they are smoking.

Then immediately pour the oils over the tofu.
