Here’s a dish I enjoyed a lot growing up. It’s a very simple Dau Sot Ca Chua recipe that is my comfort food. As a kid I ate this a lot, but never even considered the work my parents or grandma would put into making this. It would kind of just appear during dinner time (I appreciate it much more now!).
Skip the restaurant, and enjoy Chinese food at home with a veggie stir-fry served with hoisin sauce and moo shu pancakes (found in the frozen section of Asian markets). To assemble, smear hoisin on a pancake, spoon in stir-fry, and roll like a burrito. Vegans can substitute rice paper wrappers and swap baked tofu strips for the eggs and agave syrup for the honey.
Rich and nutty pieces of baked tofu are perfect for adding to stir-fry or curry dishes, but they are also delicious on their own. Extra-firm tofu will hold up well to the marinating called for in this recipe, though some...
I like to make and freeze a big batch of Asian dumplings like these tofu and kimchi-filled Korean mandu. They're easy to heat up as a bite to eat between running to events and make a nice appetizer for guests, too.
