Tofu is a low calorie, high-protein soy product that may have cancer fighting properties. Tofu, black bean paste and red chili paste with garlic are available in the Asian food section of most larger supermarkets and in specialty stores. The name of the dish could be translated as "pock-marked bean curd," but do not let the name put you off. It is simple and delicious, and can be made with meat or as a vegetarian dish.
1 lb. tofu (you can use soft or firm) cut in cubes
4 oz. ground pork
1 tsp. Chili paste with garlic
1 Tbsp. Black bean paste
2 Tbsp. oil
1/4 cup chopped green onion
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Brown ground pork chili paste and black bean paste together with oil over high heat. Add cubed tofu and cook over medium heat until heated through. Add chopped green onion and black pepper to taste. Serve with steamed white rice. To make a vegetarian version of the dish simply omit the ground pork.
