I like tofu, especially when it is used in dessert. Here is a simple Lao style tofu dessert in sweet ginger water to try.

Tofu Dessert


* 3 cups water
* 1 package tofu – soft silken
* 1 piece ginger, crushed
* 1/3 cup brown sugar


Use a piece of ginger, about 2 inches long or more. Add more ginger if you like its spicy hot. Smash the ginger with the flat part of your knife or use meat tenderizer. Boil the ginger, water and sugar for at least 10 minutes. The longer you boil, the spicier it gets.

Spoon 5-7 pieces of the soft tofu into a bowl. Add ginger sauce. Serve hot.

Serving size: 2 – 3
