Korean Sour And Spicy Tofu Recipe

Korean Sour And Spicy Tofu

As you know I love Korean food and I love tofu so obviously this Korean sour and spicy tofu dish is one of my favourites. It’s quite simple to make and does not take very long which is always great when you have a million assignments to do every week. I’m not sure how authentic it is because I’ve seen some recipes for this on YouTube which is what inspired me to make this but they were all a little different from the way I make mine. A lot of them also fried the tofu which I’m sure tastes amazing but isn’t very healthy so I usually just stir fry it.

I mentioned that I had made this on my latest What I Eat In A Day post and I promised you guys the recipe so I decided to share it today. I really hope you guys try this because it is so delicious and super easy to make. If you like it you can even make it in bulk and freeze it which is what I do sometimes. In case you don’t have all the Korean ingredients at home I would recommend checking at your local grocery store or at any Asian stores because most of them carry Korean items. Also I apologise for the quality of some of the images but it’s way harder to simultaneously cook and take pictures than I assumed it would be…

Ingredients

1 block of extra firm or firm tofu

1 white onion

2 spring onions

1 tsp of minced garlic

Gochujang

Soy sauce

Ketchup

Molasses or sugar or any kind of sweetener

Recipe

  1. Chop and stir fry the onions on a pan with a little bit of oil and salt till they are well cooked and put aside.
  2. Cut the tofu into bite sized pieces as shown in the images below, add a little salt and stir fry them till all the pieces are golden brown. To make the tofu extra crispy you can add a bit of potato starch to them before you stir fry them.
  3. Leave the tofu on the pan and add in the onions but turn the heat off so it doesn’t burn.
  4. For the sauce mix 4 tbsp. of soy sauce, 2-3 tbsp. of gochujang, 1 tsp. of minced garlic, 1-2 tbsp. of ketchup, 2-4 drops of molasses or 1/2 tsp of sugar and 2 tbsp of water. If you don’t want it too be too sour add a little less ketchup and vice versa. If you don’t want it to be too spicy start with 1 tsp. of gochujang and than you can add more later on if you like.
  5. Mix the sauce, tofu and onions together on the pan and stir fry on low to medium heat for a few more minutes till the sauce thickens up and everything is evenly coated.
  6. Chop the spring onions into small pieces and use them as garnish. You can also add some sesame seeds as garnish.
  7. Serve with rice, kimchi (optional) and seaweed (optional).

Korean Asparagus Recipe

I decided to do a recipe post after forever because I realised that a lot of people, including myself, are looking for new recipes to try out and new foods to try. I’ve always loved cooking and now that I have more time to focus on cooking I’ve been trying a lot of new recipes and new kinds of food which has so far been going quite well. I have made this asparagus before but I used a different recipe and it turned out pretty good but I felt like it was missing something so I decided to tweak the recipe a little bit and I ended up coming up with this recipe. I decided to share this particular recipe because I feel like it’s a pretty easy recipe- it takes me about twenty minutes to half an hour to make. It’s also one of those recipes that’s simple but delicious and you’ll just end up eating way more than you thought you would. I was inspired by this recipe I saw on YouTube. I also want to say that since it’s a Korean recipe it may have ingredients you don’t have but I have tried to add substitutes or recipes for the Korean ingredients just in case you don’t have any of the ingredients. In case you want to buy any of these ingredients you can most likely find them at most Asian stores, Wholefoods or supermarkets that have Asian foods. Oh and of course this recipe is fully vegan!

Ingredients

1 bunch of asparagus
1 small white onion
3 tbs Gochujang (in case you don’t have store bought Gochujang here is a recipe to make it at home)
1 tsp ground red pepper powder (optional)
Salt
2 tbs Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Sesame seeds (optional)
Oil
4 cloves garlic (you can use garlic powder if you don’t have fresh garlic at home)
2 tsp minced ginger (you can use ginger powder if you don’t have fresh garlic at home)
res_1587529659977

Instructions

  1. Slice the onions, chop the garlic into small pieces and cut the asparagus into bite sized pieces- about 4/5 cm.
  2. Heat about two tablespoons of oil on medium heat on a pan for a few seconds.
  3. Once the oil is heated add the onion, garlic and ginger to the oil and let it heat on medium heat for a few seconds. (Tip: all three of these ingredients burn easy so make sure to keep stirring them while they cook and only let them heat for about a minute or so)
  4. Next add the cut up asparagus in with the onion, garlic and ginger and let it heat on medium/high heat for about 5-8 minutes or until it is well cooked. (Tip: asparagus cooks pretty fast so make sure not to overcook it!)
  5. Add salt to the vegetable. I usually add about half a teaspoon but feel free to add more or less according to your taste.
  6. When the asparagus looks almost done add about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce (or however much you would prefer according to your taste), 3 tablespoons of Gochujang (Tip: Gochujang is spicy so add more if you like your food spicy or less if you don’t like spicy food), 1 teaspoon of ground red pepper (Tip: this is totally optional and you can skip it if you don’t like spicy food) and mix everything together well. (Tip: if you don’t have any store bought gochujang at home you can make it from scratch with this recipe)
  7. Once the vegetable are fully cooked garnish the dish with about 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds (optional). (Tip: If you’re not a fan of sesame seeds or don’t have any at home you can also garnish it with chopped up spring onions or some shredded kimchi or shredded seaweed)
  8. You can enjoy this with rice and you can eat the rice and asparagus with kimchi or seaweed for extra flavour.

This is probably not a very traditional recipe but it is super delicious so I would totally recommend trying it out! Hope you guys enjoy this recipe. Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried anything new recently or if you like Korean food!

Sophie’s Aubergine and Chickpea Tagine

This sounds so yummy can’t wait to try it!

Eat Green and Prosper

Hello everyone! I’m back today with another favourite of mine – a delicious and easy vegan tagine. It’s made from chickpeas and aubergine and it’s packed full of flavour and colour. This is a perfect summer dish as it fills you up without being too heavy or stodgy. I’ve tried a few different versions of vegetable tagine with couscous but this is the one I always come back to. The chickpeas, aubergine and olives work really well in combination together, and the chilli flakes give it that extra kick that I love.

Ingredients (serves 4):

1/2 a red onion

1 yellow pepper

1 aubergine

100g cherry tomatoes

400g chickpeas

400g chopped tomatoes

1 large clove garlic

150g black olives

1tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp coriander

1tsp turmeric

1tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp chilli flakes (or more depending on your spice tolerance!)

75g couscous per person to serve

1/2 lime per person…
