I'm really racking my brain to find something to post on today but I took pictures as I was cooking last night so how about a recipe (that I can't imagine anyone is going to try...) Last night's meal was Mabo Dofu which I suppose is actually Chinese. This is a no brainer for me. It is one of my family's favorites. I don't need a recipe since I can make it with my eyes closed. Usually I have ground meat on hand and tofu so I don't have to go shopping special, and I can make it in 15 minutes or less. Here goes...
2 green onions (big thick ones. Maybe called leeks in some countries)
1 piece of fresh ginger about the size of your thumb
1 clove of garlic
Red pepper flakes (or a dried red pepper. The really spicy one)
1 Tbsp miso (fermented bean paste)
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp sake
1 Tbsp sugar
1 boullion cube
chili oil or sesame seed oil
- Brown ground meat, add chopped green onions, ginger, garlic and red pepper.
- Add 1 cup water and flavorings
- Simmer 5 minutes
- Add tofu cut into cubes and heat through
- Thicken slightly with corn starch and add chili oil to desired spicyness
I'm assuming no one wants the recipe for jellyfish salad!
