Spicy Tofu Salad



This one is for those who love spicy food. It's an authentic Thai dish called "Laab", you can easily find this menu at any Thai restaurants but mostly they cook with your choice of meats. I got Laab Seasoning Mix from Thai market. Its taste is tangy and spicy.


I started by squeezing liquid out of tofu with paper towel and crumble it into small pieces, heat 1/4 cup of water in a pan, add tofu and stir for 4-5 minutes, stir in the seasoning mix and diced shallots, add soy sauce to taste, mix well. Garnish with mint leaves and serve with fresh veggies.


How easy is that!!

Note: You can make your own mix by using 2 tbsp roasted ground rice, 2 tsp chili powder, 3 tbs soy sauce and 2-3 tbs lime juice.
