Last updated: Mar 9, 2014 — Published: Mar 9, 2014 — By: Anita — 4 comments

This is another tofu recipe that is super fast to make, and best of all, you only need a microwave. That said, you can always go the traditional way by steaming the tofu for 5 minutes, and the sauce can be made on a stove. Let’s move on to the sauce itself, dou ban jiang is the main sauce for making mapo tofu, and seeing how most people love mapo tofu, I am betting that this recipe will be a smashing hit too, but you can always substitute dou ban jiang with the same amount of black bean garlic sauce.
