Back to School Meals is this week #SundaySupper theme, hosted by Nicole Cook from Daily Dish Recipes. Thanks Nicole for having such a great idea of theme that perfectly match for #SundaySupper, that has a mission to help to bring families together around the family table. It is not easy to come out with a good meal plan for dinner after a busy day especially for those who have children. Even though I do not have any children but this theme definitely is very useful for me too.
As a working profession who has to spend more than 10 hours outside, I always value a quick and easy meal preparation too. As for me who always will be earlier to reach home earlier than Simon by 30 to 45 minutes only. So, just imagine, I am just like those rushing parents, to make sure the dinner is done or at least almost done when your loved one is home. I always treasure for those quick, simple and easy recipes and am so happy I have about 50 over of the #SundaySupper members who is going to share their tips today.
Today I am going to share with all of you - Steamed Tofu Serve with Fried Mix Vegetables. I have chosen the fried tofu as I like the savory taste of it. This recipe took about 30 minutes to be ready and the wonderful thing is you can come out with another dish from it. How? You can prepare a little more portion for the fried mix vegetables which suppose to be pour on top of the steamed tofu. What I did was, I will take out 3/4 of the portions of the fried mix vegetables which I stir fried with some minced meat until it turned brownish and fragrance, before I add in with water that mixed with corn starch and other seasoning ingredients.
The fried mix vegetables with minced meat always can be your second dish for your dinner or for me I will keep and fridge for my next meal. This dish is perfectly goes with plain porridge or you can use it to make braised noodles, or even to go with pasta like spaghetti.
Hope you will like this quick and simple recipe!

Thank you Dear! No problem, you can have the whole kitchen when you are ready:)Delete
I never prepare tofu, but I like the idea of steaming it first. Those vegetables with meat sound delicious Faye! Have a great sunday!ReplyDelete
Thank you Paula! You should try the steam tofu, the texture is smoother compare with other method. You have a great weekend too!Delete
I have not heard of steaming tofu before. I'll have to give it a try. I love the vegetables part too.ReplyDelete
Is healthier of cooking, Renee and it taste better on the Tofu. Thank you for dropping by. Have a great Sunday!Delete
I wonder if I could get hubby to try this. It does look good!ReplyDelete
Thank you Angie! Try it out and you wont regret:DDelete
I don't think I could get my kids to eat this...hubby might try it...but I know I would like it. It sounds delicious and I love everything you've put in the dish. Another must try!ReplyDelete
Thank you Heather, glad you like it and thank you for dropping by:DDelete
I am happy to say that this would be a approved meal in my house, even the 1 year old likes tofu. I must try steaming tofu next time, thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear that Laura, will share more tofu recipe soon:)Delete
oh yum. I would love this dish. Sounds like mapo tofu! The tofu looks dark in color. I am use to the white ones. Can I ask what makes it darker?ReplyDelete
Oh...I like mapo tofu too, Sarah! Will try it out soon. The tofu looks dark because it has been fried. We have a choice of the fried type or the normal white one. I like the fried type. Thanks for dropping by:)Delete
I don't cook with tofu often, but next time I do I will have to look at cooking it this way. Never would have though of it!ReplyDelete
Try it out, Erin. You will like it:) Thank your visit:)Delete
Tofu definitely isn't our thing, but it does look interesting. :)ReplyDelete

Thank you Jamie!Delete
My kids love steamed tofu! I've never tried fried tofu...I will have to look for it! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Thanks Amy! White tofu are good too!Delete
Fried tofu covered with a meaty/veggie sauce is one of my favourite dishes. Yours looks delicious! I'm in the same boat as you - I work full time and usually get home earlier than my husband, so I always feel that pressure to have dinner finished by the time he gets home. Having quick, delicious and nutritious meals like this as a go-to definitely helps!ReplyDelete
Hahahaha...Nancy we shouldn't feel pressure when cooking, we should enjoy it. Thanks for your comments and am glad you like this dish.Delete
