Tomato Tofu Cold Dish

Tomato Tofu Cold Dish is a refreshing and healthy option for those who are looking for a light meal or midnight supper. This dish is perfect for hot summer days when you don’t want to eat anything heavy. The combination of fresh tomatoes and silky tofu creates a delicious and satisfying flavour that will leave you feeling full and energized.

We have been losing our appetite so we have been considering trying lighter, refreshing meals like salads or smoothies, and making sure to stay hydrated. If you’re feeling less hungry than usual during the summer, you’re not alone. The heat and humidity can make it difficult to want to eat, but it’s important to make sure you’re still getting the nutrients your body needs. The combination of juicy tomatoes and soft tofu mixed with the unique “Wafu” flavour creates an explosion of taste that will leave you wanting more.

No cooking involve

Usually, as a typical Chinese family, our mom will make hot tofu dishes.
But these days we just want to eat something cool and don’t sweat in the middle of a meal. This tofu salad is a game-changer for anyone looking for a quick and easy meal without any cooking involved.

First, gather your ingredients: a block of firm tofu, chopped or shredded ingredients (chicken, onion and seaweed). We also recommend you replace it with cucumber or carrot. For a vegan lover remove the chicken and top it up with other veggies.

Drain the tofu to remove excess water, then crumble it into a bowl. Add the chopped veggies and chicken, along with a drizzle of the homemade Wafu sauce. Voila! A delicious and healthy dish that’s perfect for lunch, dinner or supper.

Wafu Dressing

“Wafu” as known as Japanese dressing, is a versatile condiment that can be used in a variety of dishes. It is a combination of soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil, with the addition of other ingredients like ginger, garlic, and sugar. The result is a tangy, slightly sweet dressing that pairs well with salads, vegetables, and meats.

One of the great things about Japanese dressing is that it is easy to make at home. With just a few simple ingredients, you can create a delicious dressing that will elevate any dish. Plus, making your dressing allows you to control the ingredients and adjust the flavour to your liking.

We decided to add wasabi to our version of “Wafu” dressing to give the dressing a light spiciness.
