IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO AREN’T KEEN ON TOFU AND THINK IT’S BLAND, THEN YOU MUST TRY PRESERVED BEAN CURD. ALSO KNOWN AS FERMENTED BEAN CURD OR ‘VIETNAMESE CHEESE, THESE CUBES OF BEAN CURD HAVE BEEN FERMENTED IN RICE WINE. THERE ARE DIFFERENT VARIETIES AVAILABLE, SUCH AS WHITE OR RED BEAN CURD MARINATED IN SESAME OIL OR CHILLI, ALTHOUGH THE CHILLI FLAVOUR IS MY PICK. THESE CAN BE FOUND IN YOUR ASIAN MARKET IN GLASS JARS. YOU CAN KEEP THE JARS REFRIGERATED FOR 3 MONTHS.
