Steamed Tofu

 My friend asked me how to cook tofu the other day, actually there's a lot of people who wants to try tofu but don't know how to cook it. Tofu doesn't taste anything by itself, it has to add to something, or add something to it to bring the flavour in. This is a very simple and healthy dish that we used to make.

You can get the silken tofu for this dish. Todu comes in different texture. First of all, fry sliced shallots in olive oil until golden brown. Then add the oil with the shallots on top of the tofu, as in picture below, and let it steam for about 15 minutes. Tofu is already cooked, so you just really want to warm it up.

Steam it on the boiling water, as in picture. I add some dried shrimp and green onions in, but not everyone likes the taste of dried shrimp, and not forgetting soy sauce. You can eat the tofu with rice, and some other dishes.
