Cold Tofu with Sauce and Herbs

This is an extremely simple dish, it is my favourite tofu dish, but I’m a big tofu fan, I can eat a whole tub of this in one go. It is low fat and vegetarian, and so refreshing on a hot day. The sauce came from my Dad’s repertoire.

1 box of silken tofu (alternatively use those round Japanese tofu)
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp ginger oil
1 tsp sesame oil
Drizzle of chilli oil
Handful of fried shallots
1 chilli, chopped (optional)
3 sprigs of fresh coriander, roughly chopped
2 stalks of spring onion, roughly chopped

1.          Tip the tofu onto a serving plate, drain off the water.
2.          Make 2 cuts along the long side of the rectangle, and 4 cuts along the short side, but keep tofu in its rectangular shape for presentation.
3.          Mix all the sauces together and pour it over the tofu.
4.          If you prefer to eat this warm, you can steam it for 5 mins or microwave it for 1.5 minutes on high.
5.          Top with the chopped herbs and fried shallots.
