i’m cold and wet after the walk home from work. knew i had a block of tofu and as i walked, and the closest “grocery store” was my corner bodega. “what could i cook for cheap to warm my damp bones”. my dream meal would’ve been a gallon of cioppino from el pescador in la jolla, so i activated my taste bud memory and channeled a so-cal version of a nor-cal favorite……with tofu.
tuned out perfect. light, warming, spicy, good stuff. would’ve been better with seafood stock.
