Fried Tomatoes and Tofu (番茄炒豆腐)

This is a simple dish with lovely flavors, and great textures. I like to use this to accompany spicy dishes, and dishes that have bolder, and stronger flavors. It gives a nice balance to offset these dishes.


2 tomatoes

1 block of silken tofu

1/2 cup of soy beans or sweet peas

1 Tbsp catsup

1 Tbsp salt

1 tsp sugar

3 Tbsp of vegetable oil


1. Cube the tofu into bite size pieces, and put into boiling water for 1 minute, remove, strain, and set aside.

2. Wedge the tomatoes, reserving any juice to the side.

3. Whisk the catsup, salt, sugar, and tomato juice together, and set aside.

4. In a wok heat the vegetable oil, and add in the soy beans or sweet peas, and stir fry for about 1 minute.

5. Add the tofu into the wok with the tomatoes and stir fry for another minute.

6. Add the tomatoes, and stir fry for another minute.

7. Now add the sauce mixture and stir fry for another minute, or until the sauce thickens a bit.

8. Plate and serve.
