Silken Tofu with Caramelised Shallots


Place a steamer basket over a large wok filled with 2 cups of water and place over high heat. Place the tofu on a plate and place into the steamer basket and steam the tofu for 10-12 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the caramelised shallots. Place the oil into a small pan and saute the shallots for a few minutes until softened. Sprinkle over the sugar and add in the dark and light soy sauce and cook for a further 5-10 minutes until caramelised.

Once the tofu is ready, remove from heat and ladle over the caramelised shallots. Garnish with sliced spring onions and coriander leaves.
