Salted Egg steamed Tofu



Tofu or soy bean curd is nutritious, full of protein, low in carbohydrates with no oil or sodium.  Rather bland in taste on its own but pairs well with many ingredients.  This is a very easy dish to prepare  with minced meat and Shitake mushrooms topped with salted egg yolk.  The egg yolk adds a golden hue to the colour of this dish.   A fuss-free dish which goes down very well with a bowl of hot, fluffy, white rice.

    Hi Cheah, Salted egg is my favourite. I used it to cook any dish that comes to my mind. I am contended just having plain porridge and a salted egg.

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
