I love tofu, be it fried, braised or steamed. And they are just so nutritious too.
This is one of my favourite tofu dishes as it’s not oily, not heaty and really easy to make. Who says tofu must always be plain? Not when they are dressed up like this Steamed Tofu with Minced Pork & Wolfberries.
The silky smooth texture of the silken tofu is well complemented by the tender minced pork and sweet wolfberries (aka goji berries). Best served with steamed rice or porridge. Enjoy! 🙂
