Steamed Tofu

Tofu is high in protein and low in calories. It is a popular healthy alternative in many dishes that have meat. Though tofu can be eaten raw, it can be cooked in a flash and served in so many ways. Steaming or blanching is one of the quickest ways to cook tofu. This removes the raw soybean taste of the tofu.

In this recipe, the steamed tofu slices are simply dressed with soy sauce, chili oil, and sesame oil, then topped off with chopped fresh green onions. This steamed tofu dish will surely be your next go-to dish when you need a simple, delicious, satisfying, and absolutely nutritious meal in a flash.


This recipe takes about 10 minutes to make. Serves 3 to 4.

• 1 pound of medium firm, cut into ¼-inch thick slices
• 1 ½ tbsp light soy source
• 1 tsp chili oil
• 1 tsp sesame oil
• ¼ cup of chopped green onions


Arrange tofu slices on a plate, then steam over boiling water for 5 minutes.
Turn the heat off and carefully take the plate of tofu out from the steamer.
Remove the water that has accumulated on the plate.
Pour soy sauce, chili oil, and sesame oil over the steamed tofu.
Garnish with chopped green onions on top.
