Tofu with Peanut Miso Sauce Recipe

Tofu with Peanut Miso Sauce

07.24.13 by Jackie

By itself, tofu can be very bland; the best remedy is a flavorful sauce paired with a load of vegetables. In this recipe I used leftover chicken, silken tofu, broccoli, red bell peppers, beech and button mushrooms, Japanese eggplant and onions. I added the chicken pieces at the last minute after reserving a portion for the vegetarians in my house.

When paired with a thick, bold, rich peanut miso sauce and served on a bed of steamed jasmine rice, you’ll have a one-dish meal sure to satisfy your family.

Mapo Tofu Recipe Recipe

Mapo Tofu Recipe

10.12.10 by Jackie

I made a variation of mapo tofu using ingredients I had available in the kitchen today. Instead of using fermented black bean sauce, I prepared a thick and spicy sauce with tomatoes, chili bean sauce and dried red chiles. I also added diced carrots and peas to the traditional silken tofu for a bit more nutrition. If you want to tone down the spiciness, you could replace it with sweet and sour sauce instead.

This is a quick and easy vegetarian meal when we’re running out of ingredients and I'm just too lazy to run to the grocery store. Onions, carrots and frozen peas are always on hand in our kitchen and they go great together, so I often use them when I make mapo tofu. You can use pretty much whatever veggies are in your pantry though, so be creative!
