If you love beancurd as much as I do, here is one easy recipe that gives you brilliant multi-colored vegetable mixed with tomato sauce.

As you may already know, beancurd is locally known as tofu in Chinese or tauhu in Malay language.

Benacurd is a healthy ingredient which I always add them into my daily soups, mixed vegetables and stir fry meats.

My mom always say that eating beancurd makes your skin smooth and supple which I believed her words are true as I do consumed lots of beancurd when I was pregnant with my first and second child. They had beautiful, fair skins which are soft to touch.

Back to the recipe.

Coincidentally, I have a bag of mixed vegetables ( a mixture of green peas, corns and carrots ) in the freezer.

Hence, I need not have to chop up fresh carrots or get a can of green peas which have saved me lots of work.

You could use soft tofu or the white block tofu for this braised tofu recipe.

However, I preferred soft tofu as it is easier to eat and easier to digest compare to the block tofu. Anyway, it is much cheaper as it comes in a tub that cost me $0.99 cents !

  1. yummy, looks good. If pos, I also love to cook with colours, using different coloured vegetables makes a dish nicer and strengths the apatite.
    A love Tahu (Indonesian name) and ate it since I was a child. It’s so versatile, you need a good sauce though. Curry or oyster sauce. I’ve never a made a vegan cheese cake with it. Maybe @Andriaperry would like to show us her result 😉

    • Have you ever made a vegan cheesecake? its delicious but I am sure I already posted the recipe in another writing site so I will have to ” Link” that recipe. Its looks just like a cream cheese based cheesecake.
