My liking for frozen tofu started when I saw the chef preparing a dish with it on TV. Out of curiosity, I tried it and just love it. Click here for the earlier recipe.
In case, some of you may not know what is frozen tofu, do visit these sites for the details which was what I did before sharing this post.
The tiny holes in the frozen tofu soak up the seasoning which make it very tasty and adding black pepper gives additional flavour and aroma to the tasteless tofu.
1-2 blocks tofu - cut 2 cm thick slices
some broccoli florets
some garlic slices
a few slices red carrots
a few slices ginger
1-2 tbsp each light soy sauce, wine and oyster sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp ground black pepper [more according to own preference]
