I’m on a bit of a health kick right now after having eaten so indulgently in Bangkok! So I came up with this recipe which is light, healthy, and absolutely delicious! Soft, silky tofu is steamed with a delicious ginger soy sauce, topped with colourful julienned vegetables…it’ll convert any “tofu haters” I promise! I think this might be my favourite tofu recipe yet and I can eat as much of it as I want without feeling guilty. Although this is something one would normally eat with rice, because I’m limiting my carbs I can eat it straight up on its own, and it’s still super yum because the soft, mild tofu acts like a base for the sauce and veggies. Oh and as a bonus, it’s vegan, so anyone can enjoy it!
