Background

Tofu by itself is bland and does not have much taste. It needs to be complemented with other ingredients to bring up its flavour. This is my to-go recipe and is really very easy to prepare. This is the perfect dish to cook if you are looking for an easy yet delicious recipe. Moreover, steaming retains most of the nutrients of the tofu. I have cooked this countless times and has received much compliments for it.

If you are a vegetarian, skip the meat and use mushroom sauce instead of oyster sauce.
