Stir- fried Chive flowers, Tofu and Crab sticks


Sorry to bother all with my scheduled Japan travel posts, but I am appreciate very much to those who left comment even i was away for vacation. Actually i spent quite a lot of time trying to finish this Japan travel post before i go for vacation, in fact still have 1-2 two more posts to go..hehehe..
After 7days of eating Bali foods (Babi guling, Bebek(duck), pork ribs & etc), soon i returned home, i really miss Nasi Lemak and Chinese foods..So I cooked this tofu dish, also cooked white cut chicken, stir fried green veggie and ABC soup soon i returned from Bali. This is a typical homecook Chinese dish that i like to prepare for my family.


Usually i don't add crab sticks into tofu dish, but spotted Rice Bowl Tales added crab sticks  (sorry, can't really remember in which post) , so i also cooked this way..Ya, add crab sticks only at the end of cooking, if you add in too early, the crab sticks will tend to be broken..

3 soft white tofu, cut into big cubes

Esther@thefussfreechef said...

Ya, after a holiday, we always miss homey kinda food. When we were in Bali last year, i didnt enjoy the food because most of it were fried and spicy, and i was missing all the clear, soupy and fresh vege kinda dish that we have here hahaha. I like this dish, havent cooked with chive flowers for a long time.

Elin said...

Looking at this dish reminds me that it has been a while since I last had chive flowers. I must try this dish...it must taste delicious with the tofu and crab stick. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

xing hui said...
