I grew up on my mother's yummylicious cooking where every meal is prepared lovingly by my mother. Her cooking is touch and feel and she doesnt use a recipe book nor does she write them down. Some of these are a collection of her recipes handed down to her and now to me. Her recipes are always simple but downright delicious.

Tofu with Sautéed Garlic and Sesame Oil
I am all for quick and easy cooking, especially on a week night and you are tired from a long day at the office. Which is why this is one of my favourite side dishes; it can be served with rice and a main dish or another vegetable dish, whichever you prefer.
All you need is soft tofu, available from any asian grocer in the cold/refrigerated section. The rest of the ingredients are basic things in any kitchen/pantry.
You may even serve this to guests at a dinner party because it looks good and tastes even better! Best of all it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare.
3 cloves garlic (finely minced),
3 stalks spring onion (sliced finely)
2 birds eye chilie (sliced finely)
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp corn flour (mixed with 1/2 cup water)
2 tbsp Vegetable oil
A dash of sesame oil
Sauté garlic, spring onions & chillies for 2 minutes in heated oil.
Glaze with soy sauce
Add corn flour mix and stir through and take off the heat.
Slice tofu and place on a heat proof serving dish and pour garlic soy mixture.
drizzle with sesame oil & top with some fried shallots and serve!
