This is a basic recipe that lends itself to many variations (see below). You can make it lighter by adding more fresh tomatoes, or heavier and richer by adding more tomato paste and olive oil.
This is a punchy and super-easy dish that is popular in Asia, particularly China and Korea. Served cold, it is a taste sensation when offered as an accompaniment to a hot dish. The great thing about it is that you can make the sauce in advance and then, just before you are ready to serve, whip the tofu out of the fridge, pour the sauce over and voilà!
