Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, filled with warmth and joy from being in the company of family and friends.
To start off the new year, here's yet another simple and quick take on a classic Chinese-inspired recipe - Mapo Tofu (麻婆豆腐). This is not your traditional Mapo Tofu recipe as I have vastly altered spice amounts (given that I am unable to tolerate high spice levels), and also adjusted the traditional ingredients ever so slightly to fit my tastes. This altered version provides a mildly spicy, slightly sweet and savory flavour that I prefer compared to the traditional full on "麻辣" (Spicy and Numbing) flavours.
It is a really good time-saving, delicious dish to go along with rice and is quite easy to make! Without further adieu, here we go - enjoy!
