This easy steamed tofu is my go-to recipe when I am in a hurry to prepare a quick dish for lunch/dinner. It only needs very basic ingredients, like garlic, scallions, and two kinds of soy sauce. Plus, I can make this in a microwave, which is perfect for days when I am too lazy to deal with the kitchen stove. The biggest bonus point for me though is that this steamed tofu is so easy and so fast to prepare, everyone in my family love it, and it’s also gluten-free and vegan-friendly!

What other toppings can I use for the steamed tofu?

What I love with this recipe is how versatile it can be. Here, I use thinly sliced scallions, scallion ribbons, and a couple of cilantro sprigs as toppings. But these are not the only toppings you can use. I have made this countless time with different kind of toppings. Some of my favorite include:

  • thinly sliced bell peppers
  • thinly sliced Chinese celery
  • katsuobushi (Japanese shaved bonito flakes)
  • toasted sesame seeds
  • century egg
  • pork floss
  • e.t.c.

So go wild, experiment, and have fun.
