This is a super easy and delicious bean curd recipe. A side dish for any gathering, this is a great one for leftovers or for a quick lunch or snack.
The “bean curd szechuan style” does have a certain appeal, but I don’t think I would ever use it in a sentence. Instead, it’s a recipe I’ve used many times in the past, but I still like to have a little “back up” in case things don’t turn out as expected.
The main point of the recipe is that the bean curd is made of a very concentrated soy flour. It is mixed with spices, salt, and soy sauce. And, since its a bean curd, its a great one to make in bulk and freeze for a quick lunch, or when you need a quick dinner.
Bean curd is a very popular Chinese dish. I remember my sister making it for a family get-together one time, and it was so sweet. I have made it for countless friends and family as well. So I know how good it can be, but I dont think I would ever add anything to it.
Bean curd, like many Asian recipes, is often filled with pork fat, which gives it a distinctly porky flavor. It is also very high in sodium. To minimize sodium, I try to make it thicker than normal, so that it takes on a richer flavor. Its also important that the bean curd be cooked to the consistency of a thick porridge.
I can remember eating this at an Asian restaurant in Hong Kong some months ago. This is a recipe that is not readily available to the average Westerner, but I have found that the flavor and texture of it is quite comparable to a normal Chinese or Japanese curd. To prevent it from getting too thick too early in your cooking, you can add a bit of salt as well as a bit of sugar.
You can also add a bit of the red beans that have been used for Chinese cooking. The red beans are what give this dish a rich flavor, but the bean curd itself can be made with any number of other vegetables, including spinach, carrots, and tomatoes.
The red bean curd is a very distinctive curd, so I think it would be great to see more of it in an Asian restaurant.
I have a strong suspicion that it will be added to many Asian restaurants. I personally think it is the best thing I have ever tasted, and I’ve tried many other dishes in my time, but never anything quite like this. It will definitely be an attraction for many people who want to try it for the first time. Also, the bean curd is a vegetable that is common in Asia, so it’s probably not too far behind.
Personally I think the bean curd is the best thing I have ever tasted, but I also think that there is a lot of room for improvement, especially in the presentation and that the curd itself is very bland. That being said, I think this is definitely worth a try.
