To be honest, Kangkong and Tofu In Oyster Sauce is really not one of the dishes that’s a regular in our menu rotation. That’s because tofu is one of those food items that I’m still trying to make Ykaie and Twinkle appreciate. BUT! because I’m trying to look for more ways to serve veggies and other healthy dishes, I’m slowly incorporating this to our meals.
Ako, personally, I love tofu — so I love love love this dish. It’s not only delicious, it’s healthy… and most of all budget-friendly. I think that’s what most mommies are looking for in a dish, right?
To cook this dish, I just sautéed everything together. I didn’t use onions because I’m avoiding it for the moment because of acid reflux but you can go ahead and add onions to garlic pag nag-gisa kayo. It’ll definitely make it more flavorful.
