How to buy delicious tofu
- To be on the safe side, you should buy white tofu to fry at home instead of buying pre-fried from the store.
- Should choose to buy pieces of tofu with an ivory-white color similar to the color of soybeans, smooth and not dry when picked up.
- Fresh tofu will have the aroma and characteristic fatty taste of beans. Do not choose to buy pieces of tofu with a faint smell of lime, because when eaten, it will feel pale, dry and spongy.
- Absolutely do not choose to buy pieces of tofu that are yellow because those are pieces of beans that contain a lot of gypsum, which is not good for health.
First, wash the asparagus and string beans, then cut them into pieces and drain. Peel and cut the carrots into circles, and wash and cut the king oyster mushrooms in half. Cut the bell peppers according to your preference. Finally, peel the purple onion, wash it, and cut it into wedges.
2. Saute ingredients until fragrant
Put a pan on the stove and add 1 tablespoon of oil. When the oil is hot, sauté the chopped red onion until fragrant. Then, add the string beans and carrots to the pan.
