Uploaded by cookingwithdog on 19.06.2011

Hi, I'm Francis,
the host of this show "Cooking with Dog."
Let’s remove the excess water from the tofu.
Remove the tofu block from the package.
Warp the tofu with a paper towel.
Sit the tofu in the fridge while preparing for the next step.
Let’s cut the vegetables.
Cut the string bean pods into 3 pieces.
Pull off the strings from the snap bean pods.
Cut the broccoli into bite-size pieces.
Put the salt in the pot of hot water and dissolve.
Bring to a boil at high heat.
First, cook the string bean pods for 2 minutes.
Next, add the broccoli and snap bean pods and cook for 1 more minute.
Turn off the burner
and remove the vegetables with a mesh strainer.
Let them cool down on a mesh strainer while using a paper fan.
Let’s serve the vegetables in a salad bowl.
Remove the firm part from the red leaf lettuce leaves
and tear the leaves into bite-size pieces.
Spread the lettuce in the bowl.
Place the boiled string bean pods,
broccoli, and snap bean pods on the lettuce.
Remove the stems from the tomatoes, cut them in half and place in the bowl.
Thinly slice the new onion, also known as a young onion
This is an early harvested onion
that retains a very soft and sweet flavor.
Cut the cucumber lengthwise,
cut it diagonally into ⅛ inch slices
and sprinkle on the slices.
Cover the salad bowl with a plastic wrap and let it chill in the fridge.
Finally, chop the spring onion leaves into fine pieces.
When the vegetables are chilled, serve the tofu on the salad.
Scoop the tofu with a spoon and place it on the vegetables.
Sprinkle on the spring onion.
Let’s prepare for a garlic dressing.
Chop the bacon slice into fine pieces.
Cut the garlic clove in half and remove the root part.
Make vertical cuts in the garlic,
slice across the initial cuts
and then chop the garlic clove into fine pieces.
Put the olive oil
and chopped garlic in a small pan
and turn on the burner.
Stir-fry the garlic at low heat until aromatic.
Add the bacon and continue to stir-fry.
When the bacon is slightly colored,
add the soy sauce
and sugar.
Stir to combine
and turn off the burner.
Grate the young onion and add it to the mixture.
Finally, add the lemon juice to it.
Mix evenly.
Pour the dressing on the tofu with a spoon.
Adding animal protein,
such as soft boiled egg, canned tuna and boiled meat slices,
makes it more nutritious and balanced salad.
No need to use the same ingredients shown in the video.
Use everyday vegetables to make your own tofu salad.
Good luck in the kitchen!
