Why we love it? Tofu is rarely done in a gourmet way. We love this dish because it pays homage to protein-packed tofu, with a Thai-like twist. The tofu itself offers a slightly-charred quality that mimics a barbecued meat, making it different than a standard, baked-tofu dish. It’s highly recommended for those who crave a spicy kick to their veggie-friendly cuisine.
