BRAISED TOFU & MINCED PORK


Who doesn't like these soft squishy little nuggets of tofu, they are just so versatile. Soft, yummy, packed with protein and just all around a lovely ingredient, its just at times it can be a bit bland. Let me show you have to fully utilise these soft little nuggets.

When braised in sweet, savoury soy sauce infused with garlic and aromatic ginger, the tofu will just absorb all of this rich sauce giving you a very flavourful and yummy piece to bite into. Paired with some tender juicy bits of mince pork this is sure to be a winning dish at gatherings. You can optionally swap the minced pork for minced chicken or even minced mushrooms to make it a vegetarian dish. So grab you wok and set some rice to cook as this dish is gonna be whipped up in a flash and gone even faster.
