  1. Yum. My mouth is watering just thinking about this dish. A classic and a great way to eat Tofu.

  2. Love how it's pan-fried and not deep-fried tofu cubes!

  3. These tofu cubes look absolutely delicious Angie! Can't believe I hadn't found your blog before. I am half Chinese but I struggle to make any type of Asian food as I was raised in Australia and my mum never cooked anything traditional. I'm going to give your recipes a go and hopefully discover my roots in the process, thanks!
