Korean Soft Tofu Soup (Sundubu-jjigae)

Korean Soft Tofu, Sundubu-jjigae (or sometimes I see called Soondubu-jjigae) is incredible. I love the spicy and pungent broth, tender and delicious proteins, and soft and delicate tofu in the bubbling hot spicy stew. The recipe is adapted from @maangchi version. I even picked up some Korean earthenware bowls at a local Restaurant Supply store... Continue Reading →

Fried Marinated Tofu

My savory Marinated Fried Tofu is the perfect prepared plant-based protein for many of my favorite vegetarian Vietnamese dishes.

Tofu Burger

I think I've mentioned in a previous blog that I've been practicing vegetarianism, 10 days a month, since I was about 9 years old.  I remember when I first started this vegetarianism thing, my mom always tried to make vegetarian food seem like it was real meat so we can eat it.  I didn't really...

Tofu and Asparagus Stir Fry
