Soft Tofu with Soy Sauce

….Tofu is a healthy ingredient as everyone knows. It’s a must-have ingredient in everyone’s refrigerator. I also use it as an ingredient in many foods. Sometimes, I use tofu as a main ingredient for a dish and eat a simple healthy meal. JOHN is crazy about this dish and can eat this once in a week. Light soy sauce helps the flavor of delicious soft tofu. It doesn’t need heat and can be eaten cold. You can add your favorite vegetables with this, so you can enjoy a variety of flavors. I add some okra, katsuobushi, and garlic chips on top of the soft tofu today. Okra has a mild taste and a unique texture with a peach-like fuzz on the outside. It contains a sticky juice that people use to thicken sauce. My husband loves to add green onions as well. This recipe is from @booth108kwon.
