Mapo Tofu (Sichuan Style)

I love a dish with a good story behind it and this week over at PBS I’ve written about the legend behind Mapo Doufu, a fiery dish from the Sichuan Province in China. It also happens to be one of my favorite tofu dishes, loaded with aromatics, spicy chilies and tongue tingling Sichuan Peppercorn. Check it out over at PBS.

    I am so going to make this tonight.  I’ve always made my own variation of it but never made it with the sichuan peppercorns!  That should give it that needed punch to the dish! :)

    I made this dish last night for a somewhat impromptu dinner party and it was definitely a crowd pleaser.  Also, we used fake meat crumbles because there were two vegetarians, and everyone was still quite happy.   Thank you for providing such a great recipe.
