" What?? Vegetarian **%% ?? What do you eat then ? " That is what I got from my colleague when I told him that I am a vegetarian.
He he and that is just one of the weird comments I received..There are a lot more in the listJ
Here is another one "Girl, where do u get all protein u need..no wonder u r so short"J..
So to all my dear friends who are soo worried about my protein intake..here is the answer, I do get my fare share from Legumes, Tofu ,Nuts etc etcJ
Here in Singapore, we get like a hundred varieties of tofu and I love to play around with them..
Now, this is the latest one I got my hands on to..Spiced Tau Kwa aka spiced Extra Firm Tofu
Spiced Tofu with Bean sprouts
100 gms Tau Kwa
1 Cup Bean Sprouts
1 Red Chilly chopped finely
2 Cloves Garlic & ½ Inch Ginger chopped finely
2 Stems Parsley
1-2 tspn Sesame Oil
1 tspn light Soy sauce
Cube the Tau kwa and add it to boiling water and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
Strain and keep aside the Tau Kwa
In a wok, add the oil and sauté the ginger and Garlic
Add the Chilly and sauté for few seconds.
Add the tau kwa and soy sauce and stir fry for 2 minutes
Add the bean sprouts and cook until the sprouts turn light and tender.
Add the chopped parsley and stir well.
There you have a spicy, crispy and healthy dish:-)
