When creating a meal plan, as I usually only cook for two, I look for recipes that call for most of the same ingredients. This Tofu Sisig recipe uses the rest of the tofu from the last recipe I posted, Braised Fish Fillet with Tofu.

Unlike the Braised Fish Fillet recipe, this Tofu Sisig is only semi-healthy. Actually, I’m really not sure if this is healthy at all. Heehee! For some reason, from which I blame popular culture, whenever I omit meat from what I cook, I feel that I’m eating healthier. This is probably just half true. Anyway, why semi-healthy? Because the other main ingredient of this Tofu Sisig recipe is mayonnaise. Perhaps using light mayo instead?

Ingredients
  • 50 g tofu, cubed
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped

Mayonnaise mix

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp parsley
  • 2 tbsp water
  • black pepper to taste

Garnish

  • 2 finger chilies, sliced
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
Steps
  1. Fry tofu until golden brown, set aside
  2. Combine mayonnaise, oyster sauce, sugar, parsley, water and pepper, mix well
  3. Heat mixture in low heat while stirring, set aside
  4. Using sizzling plate (a skillet will do), over high heat, saute garlic, bell pepper and onions
  5. Add tofu and mayonnaise mix
  6. Top with sliced chili and onion and enjoy!

This Tofu Sisig recipe is more of a beer-buddy-type-of-recipe. Perhaps some chopped liver or a small amount of meat (fried to a crisp) will make this Tofu Sisig recipe more suitable to eat with rice. Then maybe top off with a generous amount of chicharon… Hahaha! So much for trying to keep things “healthy”.
