Smoked Tofu or Seasoned Tofu is a very distinctive form of tofu that have great flavor and firm texture.This type of tofu is suitable for stir-fry or steamed.I understand Taiwanese love this type of tofu because it's good pairing with congee or porridge. You can get various flavor of smoked tofu in any Asian market at chiller section .On top of that the shelf life is quite long compare with others regular tofu..Since I have some leftover wood ear mushroom or black fungus,I combined both with chicken meat to make a wonderful comfort dish.Not much seasoning needed since the tofu have it's own flavor..
