According to Wikipedia, “tofu also known as bean curd, is a food made by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into soft white blocks.” It is very popular in Asian cuisine. Among the popular dishes with tofu or bean curd are stir-fried broccoli and bean curd in oyster sauce, barbecued bean curd, bean curd omelet, bean curd and vegetable soup and a whole lot more. Since tofu has a subtle flavor, it is often used in sweet and sour dishes.

Chicken adobo with fried tofu  is another way of cooking adobo. To make this dish, tofu is initially fried until golden brown then set aside. In a pot, chicken pieces are marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, bay leaf, peppercorns and salt. Once the adobo is done, fried tofu is added then simmered for a few minutes. Enjoy!
