Story Behind this Recipe
Frozen tofu has a lot of benefits . You can use it instead of meat and it often appears on our family table. Even if you reduce the quantity of meat you still have a satisfying dish. This is why I tried to make recipes with frozen tofu. This time I used ginger as the main flavor to season because my husband loves it .
When you freeze the tofu you can put the packaged tofu in the freezer as it is. There is a possibility that it may swell and explode so it might be better to put the package into a plastic bag. It is ideal to defrost the frozen tofu at room temperature but If you use the microwave, transfer the tofu in a spacious heat-resistent dish and put it in a 500w microwave for about 6 minutes.
