14 oz soft  tofu

Step 1:    Cut the tofu into 1/2-inch thick slices. You can further cut the slices in half crosswise if you like smaller slices. Slice green onion, garlic, and red chili.



Step 2:    Preheat a nonstick pan with 1 generous tablespoons of cooking oil on medium-high.   Add DouBanJiang ( fermented hot bean paste).   Stir fry for 1 minutes till the oil turn red in color.   Add garlic and red chili.  Stir fry for 30 seconds.    Add 1 cup water ( or chicken stock).  Bring up to a boil.
