Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. Food prices here in Korea have skyrocketed of late, so its time to find an outdoor market close to home. I did just that last night; purchased my weeks vegetables at a fraction of the cost, when compared to the supermarket. I also bought a block of Korean firm tofu. I hated tofu until I started living in Korea, but now it’s one of my favorites. Why? Korean tofu has a much different texture than what I was used to in Canada (mushy), and I have learned to cook with it. Plus, my traveling taste buds have simply changed! Last night I had a simple dish of fried tofu; quick, easy, tasty, and so healthy!

Tofu in the pan…cooks very quickly. I cooked mine in a bit of canola oil. A pair of tongs makes it easy to turn the tofu over. You only want to cook until golden brown; no more than 2 minutes on each side.
Fried tofu is a side dish (banchan) commonly served with Korean barbecue. However, it makes for a light and inexpensive meal when you aren’t too hungry. The dipping sauces I used were very simple, straight out of the fridge. The usual dipping sauce takes a little more prep. If you’re interested here is a great post at Beyond Kimchee ,showing and telling you everything you need to know to make this easy and healthy Korean dish.
