For one more side dish: Chilled Tofu with Tomato and Okra
You can eat this even when you're tired and don't feel like eating anything! Okras cut into pieces have good texture, and matches the great combination of olive oil and soy sauce. Heap on the toppings and eat it up with a spoon!
Boil the okra for about 2 minutes and cool them with cold water. Cut tomatoes into 5 mm pieces and put them in a bowl.
Cut okras vertically and cut them in half (4 pieces), and cut them into 5 mm pieces. Put them into the bowl from Step 1.
Add minced garlic, salt and pepper. Mix it with extra virgin olive oil and soy sauce.
Top ladlefuls of it on the tofu, and eat it with spoon!
Story Behind this Recipe
I often put garlic olive oil soy sauce with tomato on tofu, but it's also good if you add cut okra.
Mince or grate garlic if you can. If you can't, the tubed variety of grated garlic can work. The key is not to slice okras but to cut them into blocks. They'll have a better texture this way. Peel the tomato skin if you don't like it.
