Pan Fried Tofu with Peas
Pan Fried Tofu with Peas


1 package (14 ounces) firm tofu
8 ounces frozen peas
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons coconut milk
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 tablespoon finely cut ginger
1 green pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt or salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, crushed
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Cooking Method:

Drain and wash tofu. Spread a towel on a cutting board and cover with 3 layers of paper towels. Cut tofu in small pieces and spread on the cutting board. Put two layers of paper towels on top. Put the board in a slanting position in the kitchen sink. Press to squeeze all the water out.

Heat oil in a skillet. Add garlic and ginger. Cook until pink or light brown; add yogurt, coconut milk, soy sauce and vinegar. Add tofu pieces and mix very carefully so as not to break the tofu. Cover and cook on very high heat for 5 minutes. While stirring, add salt, pepper, green pepper and cilantro. Add peas, stir well. Lower to medium heat. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Turn heat off, leaving pan on hot burner until it stops simmering. Serve hot.
