Note: 我是用現成的紅麴醬,味道已經很不錯了,不要加太多醬油以免太鹹。紅麴具有活血的功效,並可強化肝臟功能,增進免疫力,對降低膽固醇,避免高血壓很有幫助。
I use the store bought Anka sauce. Do not put lot of soy sauce for the Anka sauce is already pretty salty. The Red yeast is a natural fermented food item that will regulate human metabolism and increase immunity.

腐乳豆腐 Fermented Tofu Mix


  • 2 boxes firm tofu 老豆腐
  • 4 pieces of  fermented bean curd, any kind (任何口味豆腐乳)
  • green onion 蔥
  • garlic 蒜
  • celery 芹菜
  • carrot 紅蘿蔔
  • 2 tbsp cooking wine 米酒
  • sesame oil 麻油


Wrap tofu in a double layer of paper towel to absorb water. It will easily absorb broth back to tofu when cooking in the pot later. Cut garlic, carrot and celery into small pieces.

Heat oil in a pot. Saute garlic, add carrot. Separate tofu into pieces one by one by hand and put inside the pot. Mix a little.

Note: 豆腐用手撥的會有不規則的邊,比整齊的邊可以吸收更多的湯汁。用不同口味的豆腐乳,像是辣味的或是紅麴的試試看吧!
Separate tofu by hand will create irregular edges that absorb more broth than clean cut edges. Try different flavors of fermented bean curd, such as spicy or red yeast!
