Salted Egg Yolk Tofu

I saw this recipe on Gertrude's blog - My Kitchen Snippets and the first thing I say to myself was this " gosh..I have to cook this tonite for dinner " I am a tofu lover and this is something new , cooking tofu with salted egg yolk. Gertrude, " this is a great dish and you are so innovative when it comes to cooking and baking " :) " I salute you " :)) and I will be cooking this again for my Piggies when they come back this weekend. They love tofu just like me :)) Normally, I will cook chicken or prawns this style but tofu..this is the first time and it turned out wonderful. A simple yet delicious dish. The salted egg does add flavor and taste to the tofu. When my Piggies see these, they will salivate for sure :))

Daddy loves it too. I used japanese egg tofu instead of the white firm tofu and it tasted just as good. My colleague , Claire of Caring Is Not Only Sharing would love this dish. She is learning to cook now :)

I love it so much!
