Tofu Stewed in Tomatoes is a Vietnamese dish that I love to cook at home and for church potlucks. I learned the basics of it from watching my mother-in-law cook. She is a great home cook and I am eternally grateful for her wisdom and instruction. This recipe is my own version and may not be as authentic as my MIL’s but it sure tastes just as great. 😉
My children love tofu so I always serve a tofu dish on our dinner table at least once a week. Both kids sometimes fight for tofu, that’s how much they love it. 😀 Very often, I hear people tell me they don’t like tofu but whenever I serve this dish in church potlucks and vegetarian get-togethers, I always come home with an empty dish. It’s that good. The tofu in this recipe absorbs the tomato sauce very well and transforms this bland vegetarian ingredient into a flavorful, mouth-watering experience.
So, here it is.
