Based on the braised tofu dishes you can get in Chinese restaurants this is a healthy homemade version that doesn’t require deep frying.
Try braising with vegetable or chicken stock instead of the water for more flavour.
Wow! This was absolutely delicious!!! Very authentic tasting to an asian gal. Close to mum's cooking at home! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. It's great! I used a bit of onion and a lot of brocolli instead of the veggies recommended -and everything still worked out brilliantly. note: use a nonstick pan. first attempt to braise tofu in an non- non-stick was less successful. - 29 Sep 2008
My family and I loved it! The flavours in this dish are scrumptious. My teenaged daughter helped to make dinner. Because the directions were well written, she was able to do a great job in making this dish! To make it was very easy and fast! I made it as a main dish to Asian Coconut Rice ( http://sidedish.allrecipes.com/AZ/sinCcntRic.asp ) The two flavours go extremely well together. Thanks for sharing the recipe! - 29 Sep 2008
