Unlocking the Delicious Flavors of Tofu Through Braising

Braising is a cooking technique that involves slow-cooking food in a liquid, allowing it to absorb all the flavours and become tender and succulent.  

In this blog, we will explore the art of braising and how it can transform tofu into a delicious and satisfying dish.  

From savoury broths to aromatic spices, we will show you how to create deep and complex flavours that will take your tofu to the next level.  

So, let’s dive into the world of braising and discover how to elevate your tofu with deep, irresistible flavours! 

Browning Tofu for Added Flavour

One of the keys to elevating the flavours of tofu is to brown it properly.  

To brown tofu for a braised dish, heat oil in a pan until it’s hot.  

Add the tofu to the pan and fry until it turns golden brown.  

Don’t overcrowd the pan; otherwise, the tofu will steam rather than fry.  

For a crispy and spicy twist, add red pepper flakes to the tofu while frying.  

After the tofu turns golden brown, remove it from the pan and set it aside.  

In the same pan, sauté garlic and onions until fragrant.  

Add mushrooms and spinach to the pan and cook until they’re soft.  

Finally, add the browned tofu and braising sauce to the pan and let the dish simmer until the tofu is tender.

Braised tofu dishes are a great way to add more vegetables to your diet.  

Adding veggies to your braised tofu not only adds more flavour and texture but also makes the dish more nutritious.  

For an easy and healthy braised tofu dish, add your favourite vegetables  such as mushrooms, spinach, carrots, and bell peppers to the pan. 

To prepare the veggies, peel and slice them into bite-sized pieces.  

In a separate pan, brown the tofu until it turns crispy and golden brown. 

Next, sauté garlic, onions, and ginger until the aroma fills your kitchen. 

Add the vegetables to the pan and cook them until they’re soft.  

Finally, add the braising sauce to the pan and let the dish simmer.
