Tomato Tofu

My hb was in the mood to cook today. He was craving for tofu dish so we went to the Oriental store to buy the ingredients for this Tomato Tofu dish. Tofu is one of the foods allowed to be eaten by people with gout. Several studies show that soy reduces uric acid, making it a terrific way to get protein and combat gout.


1 Tablespoon cooking oil
10 ounces tomatoes, peeled and diced
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
2 Tablespoons chopped ginger
14 ounces soft tofu, drained and cut into 1-inch cubes

3 Tablespoons ketchup
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons chile garlic sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon chile oil
1. Combine the sauce ingredients in a bowl
2. Place a wok or wide frying pan over thigh heat until hot. Add the oil, swirling to coat the sides. Add the tomatoes, cilantro, and ginger. Cook stirring for 2 minutes.
3. Add the sauce and tofu; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the tofu is heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.

Yield - Makes 4 to 6 servings

Eating soy foods once or twice a week in place of meat or poultry is a smart idea.
