It's Good, I Promise...
When I was surfing blogs one day I happened across a blog called "Shaved Ice Sundays". Now I've haven't been blogging that long so this was a whole new world to me. The concept of blogs focusing on specific international cuisines. More specifically it focused on Chinese cooking. Good ol' Chinese home cooking you know the kind my Puo used to make, still does actually.
The 1 ingredient that I was super shocked to find was thousand year old egg or century egg. I was so thrilled to see someone actually put that up, since it's not one of those everyday foods.
Century egg actually reminds me of this 1 episode of "Fear Factor" that I saw. Where the contestants had to eat 1 to win 100,000.
P.S. - I would have totally rocked that challenge.
See, even though it might not look super appealing, I promise this dish I am about to give you is TASTY, in fact super tasty.
You want to WOW your friends with a truly authentic Chinese dish then this is eat, plus it has the scary challenge factor to it. Like the first time you eat an Oyster or try Foie Gras.
In the words of my significant other, "I want to hate it, I do. But I can't. It's so good".
He is not Chinese.
Thousand Year Old Egg and Tofu Salad:
2 Century eggs, diced
1/2 package of regular tofu, diced
1 green onion, chopped
2 Tbsp coriander, chopped
2 - 4 Tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp Sesame oil
small pinch of sugar
Mix all ingrediants in a bowl and leave for about 20 mins. Serves 4 as a side.
