Huang serves seven varieties of bao at BaoHaus, and Andrea Nguyen, author of Asian Tofu is partial to the Uncle Jesse. The soft bun is filled with fried tofu, crushed peanuts, cilantro, and a more sweet than spicy chile sauce. More

Tofu and pork are good friends, especially in Korean cuisine. Tofu with Kimchi and Pork Belly, or dubu kimchi, is an amazing match up of mild tofu, fatty pork belly, and spicy-sour kimchi. Doctored up with a few chiles—powdered and fresh—and a drizzle of sesame oil, this is Korean drinking food at its finest. But you don't have to be knocking back the soju to enjoy Andrea Nguyen's Tofu with Kimchi and Pork Belly from Asian Tofu. It makes for a great anytime meal, quick to assemble, easy to love, and full of a very satisfying array of textures and big tastes. More

Andrea Nguyen's Saag Soy Paneer

Caroline Russock Post a comment

Tofu isn't necessarily one of the mainstays of the Indian pantry but soy paneer as it's known in India does make its way into quite a few dishes, including this Saag Soy Paneer, adapted from Andrea Nguyen's Asian Tofu. The tofu here stands in as a vegan variation of traditional paneer, a squeaky, mild fresh cow's milk cheese. To mimic the texture and salty flavors, Nguyen soaks the tofu in salted water before drying and pan frying it. More
