This is a super simple and light dish which works great (The meat filling is also really simple to make!) when paired with other heavy tasting dishes.
We used Vitasoy Organic Sprouted Tofu, which has this great natural soybean-ey aroma and silky smooth texture. Combine that with steaming – a delicate cooking technique which draws out and retains the natural sweetness and textures of the key ingredients, and you have yourself a great dish with no pressure.
