Tofu and Enoki in Garlic Scallion Soy Sauce

 —  2 comments

Inspired by my very own enoki with garlic scallion soy sauce recipe, I thought I need to add some silken tofu to the enoki to make for a more rounded dish nutritionally speaking. Tofu is a good source of protein for vegetarian (this include vegan of course), and tofu and enoki can be considered a classic pair in many Asian dishes.

To prepare the tofu, I simply gently blanch a block of silken tofu in a pot of simmering water for 2 minutes, then drained and sliced, and plated in a serving plate. I also use the same treatment for enoki, but this time they are blanched in a pot of boiling water for 2 minutes, then drained and plated side-by-side the sliced tofu. Next is to prepare the super easy sauce.

Heat 2 tablespoon oil in a frying pan on medium high heat and sauté minced garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Then add soy sauce and sugar, cook only until sugar has dissolved. Turn the heat off and remove pan from the heat source. Add sliced scallions into the pan, stir to mix, then gently pour over tofu and enoki. Done! Not too difficult, right? This probably take a bit longer to prepare than enoki with garlic scallion soy sauce, but not by that much.

    This is a simply beautiful recipe. I have always passed Enoki by at the store because I am not sure what to do with it. Then I spotted this recipe. I love it and it's going to be on regular rotation at dinner times. Thank you! (p.s I tried to rate it 5 stars but it didn't look like they were working. They just weren't highlighting. Perhaps it's just a glitch but you might want to check it out just in case :)

      Hi Mel, thank you for giving the recipe a try, and I am glad you are loving it as much as I am :) Also, big thanks for letting me know about the problem with leaving a rating. It should work now, and I would be super happy if you can try to give the recipe a rating. I'm crossing my fingers that it will also work from your end.
