Tofu Patti Sando

Happy National Tofu Day! Did you know, today 9/1 is the day for our vegetarian savior of protein intake: tofu! 

 

Hmm, I think American make everything big, so tofu is also big in the US. Whenever I cook tofu hamburg, there is always leftover so this is my typical next-day-lunch! 

 

When I was a perfect example of carnivore, I always complained whenever there’s tofu in my patties saying “low calorie” or “healthy.” But now, I’m on a vegetarian diet and probably eat meat once in several months. Under this diet, tofu is a very good source of protein and I love tofu patties with a lighter flavor with refreshing after taste than meat patties, so I’m glad I could have my life with tofu! 

 

As I like my Asian inspired patti in Asian flavor, the sauce is of course Asian too: Teriyaki! 

 

To make it colorful and interesting in texture, I put a lot of healthy additives in my patties so it’s definitely satisfying even if you are famished!

Mmm, thank you tofu, being in my life! Fluffy tofu with rich soy flavor is already good, but with my teriyaki sauce, the taste got rich and popular with my dinner buddy! 

 

<Tips to Store the Leftover Tofu>

Soak in water and change water everyday! If you forget to change it, the tofu makes the turbo go wrong…with this method, tofu could be fresh for more than a week! 

 

Happy National Tofu Day, everyone:)
