Home Style Bean Curd Recipe

Home Style Bean Curd RecipeToday I present my Home Style Bean Curd recipe, which is also referred to as Mapo Tofu. This is comfort food on so many levels.

There are numerous flavors and textures going on with this dish. I also love that you don’t necessarily feel the heat in your mouth, but it releases a flood of heat and endorphins after you eat it. I don’t have many recipes that accomplish that. It is one of my favorite dishes period.
