:: MIL's cold tofu with duck's eggs ::

Who says chinese food can't be healthy? This recipe has a calorie count of only 250 per serving AND it's delicious!!! Didn't think it was possible eh? Most of the ingredients need to be purchased at an asian supermarket like 99Ranch or Lion.

2 boxes of "Regular" tofu (180 cal per box, 360 total)
3 preserved duck eggs, without lead, diced (80 cal per egg, 240 total)
1 packet of preserved vegetables, chopped (40 cal per bag)
1 stalk of green onion, minced (10 cal)
soy sauce
sesame oil
sugar (optional)

1. Dunk the tofu into boiling water for a few minutes
2. Drain tofu and cut into 1" cubes
3. Toss everything together in a big bowl, trying not to break up the tofu
4. Serve immediately or chilled.

Total calories: 700 cal
