Recipe: Tofu Yum-Yum Rice Bowl

Tofu Yum-Yum Rice Bowl
Bon Appetit Magazine, Apr 2015, p.16
5 stars

My mouth is watering just thinking about this dish.  Talk about great flavor and texture: it consists of rice, various herbs, amazingly seasoned tofu, egg, kimchi, peanuts and sesame seeds.  A hearty and tasty vegetarian dish from World Street Kitchen in Minneapolis.

I'm thinking that the tofu marinade can definitely be used for chicken.  We saved the extra marinade and freezed it for another time.

Tofu marinade ingredients:  tofu (of course), garlic, soy sauce, hot chili paste like sambal oelek, cilantro, ginger

Ingredients:  rice, eggs, kimchi, cilantro, basil, scallions, peanuts, sesame seeds, cornstarch, vegetable oil, salt

Tips/changes we made:
  • Not necessary to marinate the tofu for as long as required
  • Didn't fry the tofu and so didn't use cornstarch -- sauteed the tofu instead
  • Soft-boiled the eggs instead of poaching them
  • Went light on the garlic and soy sauce
