Chilled Tofu With Preserved Big Head Vegetable ( 'Tai Tow Choy' ) Topping

You can either steamed the soft tofu and eat it hot or after steaming , chilled the tofu and garnishes with preserved big head vegetable and spring onions and chillies :)  That was what I did with this soft tofu....for a change , I had it cold...a cold dish is great for our crazy hot weather.  You can eat stand alone or served as appetiser.  You can serve this as a cold savory dessert...hehehe it tastes wonderful anyway...try it chilled and tell me if you like chilled savory tofu :)  For me, most important my Wild Boar must loves it and he does .  Easy to prepare and you can say it is a lazy man dish :)

stir fry the preserved big head vegetable till fragrant
and mix together with crispy fried shallots and cut chillies
and serves as garnishes as topping for the chilled tofu

healthy and delicious
I will definitely add more tofu dishes to our meals
