OK, if you have been following this blog, you know we have been working on all sorts of pea shoots recently. We are also growing out some great radishes and using a different technique to produce almost translucent shoots know as Kaiware. With all the crops and experimentation I noticed tonight that we had 3-4 full trays all growing their second crops out in our hill garden. Didn't want to let that go to waste, so here is what we came up with ...
Call it Pea Shoot Kaiware Tofu ... this dish was AWESOME but could be costly unless you grow these guys yourself, but here goes. We took some olive oil and cut up several cloves of fresh garlic (the more the merrier) and heated on medium heat to get the garlic into the oil. Sprinkled with sea salt and pepper so we would coat the tofu with a flavorful outside. Sauteed the pea shoots and Kaiware (radish shoots) and created quite the taste mix as the pea shoots we used were snow peas, so it was like a snow pea with garlic and radish saute. We then added the tofu and you can see how the mix coated the tofu pieces in the final dish which was served over a mix of white and brown rice. This is a keeper and as a basic starter, you can add all sorts of micros or full vegies or sprouts. Highly recommeded.
