Recipes, Salty

Asian Tofu (Sweet)

Day 18 of quarantine, it’s a sunny Sunday and I have a Tofu block to finish in my fridge.

I finally decide to face my fear of making Tofu that isn’t scrambled; I get inspired from Nora Cooks Vegan and a couple other blogs, and make my own little thing.

Let me know if you try it, tweak it, hate it or love it in the comments below!
