QUICK TOFU DISH
This is an easy, fool-proof recipe. It’s also great for days when you want something light and easy, or when you need a plain side dish to complete a more elaborate spread.
The only thing to get right is in the sauteeing of the shallots. Slice the shallots thinly, and heat the oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, throw in the shallots and monitor it closely; make sure they don’t get burnt. Take it out a second or two after they turn golden. If you wait awhile longer, it might get burnt and bitter. But if you take it out too early, the shallots will be soggy and soft.
