Food Trip Friday: Tofu, Mushrooms and Tomatoes Sauté


Blog Meme, Food Trip Friday / Friday, October 29th, 2010

I’m still on my ‘lose that weight’ and ‘cease resembling a steel drum’ quest.. But allow me one sentence to lament – Why is it so hard to lose weight? Why, why, why???!!! Okay, I’m fine now hehe..

I’ve decided to do a bit of tweaking to our menu to accommodate my lose weight drama, and I’ve added some tofu as substitute to eating red meat. Not really much of a sacrifice since I love eating tofu! And the one’s I could buy from the markets here in Phnom Penh is so fresh and tastes sooo good!

Here’s one tofu recipe I’ve concocted on a whim.. Fried tofu, mushrooms sautéed with fresh tomatoes. I added some peanuts for an extra crunch and a bit of cornstarch dissolved in water before removing from heat for that extra thick sauce. Then topped with spring onions..

Yummy! Even my daughter liked it!

  1. ahaha!  your drama sounds familiar! my friend had tofu last night because she’s trying to lose weight.  pwede daw sya magpakabait ng konti pero bakit ang hirap magpapayat? LOL
    tofu as meat substitute–you’re going to the right direction.;P

  2. I like your dish, I might replicate it one of these days. 🙂
    As for the reason why it’s so hard to lose weight, it’s just more fun eating than trying to avoid it. I know how you feel!

  3. Hello po! Where do you get your tofu here in Phnom Penh? I’d like to try it too and intend to get some tomorrow, except I don’t know where to start looking. How about Lucky Market, do they have it? Thank you! 🙂

    1. @VJ, they have really fresh tofu in the markets. go there early for the good ones. it costs about 1500Riels for one big slice. There are also tofu’s in supermarkets but its not as fresh as the one’s in the markets.
