    This is an idea that I learn back in Japan for draining the water from the tofu from the micro-oven. Put tofu block in a micro-oven bowl and cover with saran wrap. Place in the micro-oven and set it for 30 seconds or 1 minute. Don’t over do it or the tofu will harden. It worked well for me especially when one does not have time to pre-drain the water from the tofu by placing a cooking board over the tofu to drain the liquids like we normally do back in Japan.

    i baste them with Olive oil and garlic first. In the mddlie layer i put Ricotta cheese mixed with crushed garlic and chopped fresh spinach and top with zuchinni, then sauce, repeat and a final topping of Parmesan or your choice of cheese. Lettuce wraps with spicy thai ground pork with fried onions and garlic. i use red chilis, garlic, toasted sesame seeds and sesame oil to season the pork. Ground meat of your choice fried with cherry tomatoes cut in half and Zuchinni Salt and peper to taste topped with fresh chives and basil. Lions head soup basically ground pork mixed with green onions, an egg, sesame seed oil salt and pepper, rolled into meat balls, fry up half a head of Savoy cabbage in butter, and onions, and 2 cups of chicken broth and 2 cups of water, let come to a simmer put in the raw pork meatballs, let simmer covered for 30 mins or till pork meatball are fully cooked, we had ours topped with fresh cilantro, green onions and sesame oil. soya sauce would be good if u were feeling like a bit of a cheat For breakfasts we have been doing baked eggs in ham cups done in ramekins @ 350 degree oven topped with cheese of your choice and green onions, bake for 12 minutes, yolks are still runny at this point but whites are cooked. and different varations of this, have used bacon, salami, thuringer, added a ricotta creamy sauce on top etc this is just whats in my head from the last week
