Fuss-free Claypot Yong Tau Foo Recipe

claypot yong tau foo recipe
Here’s a fuss-free recipe for the busy executives & novice cooks. Yong Tau Foo is a popular Asian dish that’s commonly served in a clear yellow bean soup. In some places, the varieties of ingredients are served dry, accompanied with a sweet or spicy sauce. Basically, they’re vegetables & tofu stuffed with fish or meat paste.

Making the paste & filling the ingredients one by one may be time consuming, & not many have the patience nor time to do that. #YongTauFoo are easily available in the markets & even supermarkets these days. All you need to do is to pop them into soups or simply fry them if you prefer.

I love pan-frying my Yong Tau Foo & putting them in a claypot with a home-made sauce. This time, I’ve some leftover broccoli, so I added some too. It was a simple meal for my family, & I’d paired the Claypot Yong Tau Foo with a Meatball in Dual Marrow Soup.

  22. Usually when my family wants to eat Yong Tau Foo, we'd just brave the hour's drive to Ampang to satiate the craving. Never really had the knack of making it from scratch. =)

    I think I better go and catch some light supper before I actually think of tearing the pictures out of the computer screen, Shirley. =P
