When I started making homemade Mapo Tofu, what surprised me most was how quick and easy it is! Wilt some greens in towards the end for a one-dish meal. This mostly-authentic recipe is based on the Mapo Tofu recipe at Rasamalaysia.com, adjusted for taste and what I can find at the local Asian grocery store. It makes a pretty spicy dish. To moderate the heat, replace some or all of the chili oil with vegetable oil. I LOVE Szechuan peppercorns, so I use a lot of them. Use less if you like.
