Tofu Bistek


I just discovered a new way of enjoying a block of tofu! 

Here's a recipe for bistek (usually made with thin slices of meat).

What you'll need:

1 500g block of tofu sliced thinly and fried in vegetable oil
1/2 cup of water
15 pcs of calamansi (kumquat) juiced and set aside
1 medium sized onion cut into rings kissed by oil
soy sauce to taste
sugar and pepper to taste

What to do:

In the pan where you fried the tofu, add the water, soy sauce, kumquat juice and simmer. After 3 minutes, add sugar and pepper. (I didn't use salt since soysauce has its own saltiness to it). Simmer for another minute then add the fried tofu stir until the tofu is covered with the sauce. Add the onions and simmer for 1 minute. 

Serve with rice or just enjoy it as is. 

Brightest Blessings!

2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
12 pieces of medium tomatoes diced
Dried basil about 1/2 a teaspoon
Olive oil (pomace for frying)
Salt and pepper to taste
Parmesian cheese (optional)

What to do:

In a frying pan, fry the sausages. Set aside when cooked.

In the same pan, saute garlic, then add the tomatoes. Simmer until tomatoes are cooked. Salt and pepper to taste. (The cook of the tomatoes depend on how pasty you want the sauce to be).

To serve:

Slice the now rested sausage.
Serve on a bed of lettuce leaves
Top with the tomato sauce

Sprinkle cheese on top (optional)

Brightest Blessings!
