    Silken Comfort Tofu recipe on ...reduce fish sauce to 2 TB the recipe amount is WAY too much [updated: this was fantastic! Left out the chili sauce for the kiddo but mixed a spoon of xo sauce into my rice before topping with this and it was perfect. Ultimate comfort food and took onky 15 min to cook. Going into the rotation for sure]
