Tofu with Corns



My cooking is getting easier and easier these days BECAUSE I am addicted to Taiwan Idols Drama Series!! I have no idea I can watch Taiwan series on You Tube until my hubby recommended one for me to watch. And since that one, I was hooked!! HELP!! I have been watching Chinese series from China on T.V. all these while and have no idea that the Taiwan actors and actresses are so handsome and pretty compared to the China one. I saw a clip while in Malaysia and remembered mentioned it to my older sister, wow the actors are getting very good looking. And now I know that was actually a Taiwan idols drama series.
So, my cooking has been majorly affected by my addiction and not to mention baking because what baking, I want to watch my series!! I am so afraid to start on a new series, or else everyone will suffer in my household!

Okay, okay, enough rambling. Here sharing with you my lazy and easy tofu with corns dish.

Ingredients:


1 packet soft tofu

2 cloves of garlic, chopped

Frozen corns, about 1/2 cup

2 green onions/scallions, cut

Black bean in chili oil, about 1 Tbsp.

Salt & sugar to taste


Method:


1. In a wok, heat up oil. When heated, add in garlic. Stir-fry until slight brown and fragrant, add in frozen corns. Stir for a minute, add in tofu and black bean in chili oil. Season to taste with salt and a little sugar. Add in scallions, mix well and dish out to serve.

wah which drama you watching? How can u not recommend after saying how handsome the dudes are, ha ha ...This is similar to the same lazy, but tasty way I stir fry some dishes too :D

SIG said...

daphne said...

hehhee. Hey, it's quick but it is healthy!

jo said...

That makes 2 of us. I love Taiwan Idol Drama series too. BTW, have you seen 王子變青蛙? I am totally in love with it.

Sweet Jasmine said...

Wuah.haha..drama addiction sure gets to you. I used to get hook to those korean dramas too and my family have to eat canned food. Now blog hopping take up more of my time..

Thanks Meg. I added the scallion for the color so you can omit it. :)

Wow, thanks Anon! But the quality is not as good, but if I couldn't find it on youtube, this is a great site to feed my addiction. ;)

Oh noobcook, I like the main actor in "The Super Star", "Why Why Love", and "Hana Kimi", also 王子變青蛙. They are all at least 180cm, all very tall and good looking (oops, except Jimmy Lin in The Super Star).

Hehe Sig. I haven't watched the Korean ones yet, because this one I have to read the English subtitle in order to understand, I like to listen more. :P

Thanks Daphne.

Thanks Jo, your friend is like just me now. :P

Horray (high 5 Ling)! I haven't watched 王子變青蛙 yet, not sure I can find it on youtube. But this is one I want to watch!

Yes sweet jasmine. Who asks them to be so handsome and pretty!

What a coincidence! I just started to watch Taiwanese series at Youtube. I think you will like 命中注定我愛你 (Fated to love you). I watched 王子變青蛙. two years ago from our local TV station. Lucky me is that my mom came to visit me recently and she has been doing majority our our housework (guilty...)and my daughter has school in the morning...so I have more free time...Hahaha!

Lin said...

hell yeah, i also get addicted to watching series, but my favorites would have to be korean & singapore ones, i actually download them from verycd.com, do go there if ur interested...loads of taiwanese dramas there! for me, i dun really like watching from youtube cos it's not like a whole episode throughout..hehe

Lin said...

oh, btw...do u know that u can search for video clips on cake decorating techniques from youtube? i saw some very good ones on decorating with fondants while doing my research for class work :)

Christy said...

Oh, I love this combination!!:) Such a nice and simple dish...I vote for it as one of my favorites;)

Little Corner of Mine said...

Thanks Anon, I will bookmark 命中注定我愛你 as one of the series to watch. :)

Thanks Lin for the link. Will check it out. Lin, of course I picked the one that has 1st to last episode to watch. Will check out the cake decorating technique when I need to decorate a cake later. Thanks!

Thanks Christy. In fact, I cooked it again last night. :)

SIG said...

On the contrary, there are those with Chinese subs which you can then practise reading Chinese words. ;) Have you watched the wei xiao pasta (Taiwanese)? It's very nice and it's got a bit to do with food.

Beachlover said...

aiyoo..I write a comment here but I think it's MIa somewhere..anyway try Korean drama,better than taiwanses or HK.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Sig, I haven't watched Smiling Pasta yet. Since you said good, I'm going to bookmark this. :) Thanks!

Beachlover, I got previous your comment lah. It was below this post, you wrote it under the wrong post. :)

Blur Mommy said...

Hehe.. me too!! Have been hooked on watching Taiwanese & Korean dramas online until don't feel like cooking! : ) I usually watch on mysoju.com or crunchyroll.com. I am watching 斗牛要不要now. :P

Little Corner of Mine said...

High 5 Blur mommy!! I just finished watching 斗牛要不要 yesterday! Oh man, Mike He is so handsome!! Now, I'm watching 恶作剧2吻. This one is not as exciting as 斗牛要不要. I need to go check out crunchyroll.com. Thanks for the link.

Mela said...

Anywho..they are all addicting.
Nice recipe, looks delicious, think i will try it! (^_^)/v

Little Corner of Mine said...

Thanks mela. I haven't watched Meteor Garden yet, since this one has part 1 & 2. Right now taking a break from Taiwan drama and watching K-drama. You were right, all are addicting! :)

delia said...

what is black bean in chili oil? if don't have, any substitute for it? i love your blog with all that simple recipes.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi Delia,
Black bean in chili oil is just like the name said. However, if you don't have it you can try black bean sauce and some chili oil or chili paste.
