Chilled Tofu with Thai sauce


This dish can either be eaten on it’s own or with rice. My preference is to have it with rice.

Refreshing and easy dish. Thai sauce as usual will have a combination of sweet, salty, spicy, sour. Adjust to taste.

Ingredients Serves 2

1 300-g package soft tofu, chilled, cut into large cubes
1 ½ Tbsp soy sauce
1 ½ Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp sugar
Thai chilies, to taste, minced
1 Tbsp small diced shallots
1 Tbsp finely chopped lemongrass
2 Tbsp chopped green onion
3 sprigs cilantro, chopped
3 mint leaves, chopped
¼ cup small diced cucumber
2 tsp very finely diced red bell pepper


1. Arrange tofu cubes on a deep serving plate.

2. Combine soy sauce, lime juice, palm sugar and minced Thai chilies; stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Add shallots, lemongrass, green onion, cilantro, mint, cucumber, and red bell pepper; stir to combine.

3. Spoon the sauce over each tofu cube, then pour the remaining dressing around the tofu. Serve on its own or with hot jasmine rice.
