This dish did not make it. Totally tasteless and the cilantro tasted like soap!

  1. Cut the tofu into 4 thick slices. Place slices in a pot containing 3 cups cold water and the salt. Soak for 30 minutes, then slowly bring it almost to a boil, and cook without boiling for 5 minutes.

  3. Remove tofu from heat, drain, carefully transfer to a warm serving dish, and spoon sauce over it.
  4. Suggested serving: Brown rice and steamed veggies.
