What I Eat In A Day | 3 Easy Chinese Recipes (Mapo Tofu + Steamed Eggplants + Bok Choy)

Here are my 3 easy Chinese recipes we eat on a weekly basis – mapo tofu, steamed eggplants, and Shanghai bok choy! My Mapo Tofu recipe shown in this video is Cantonese-style. I am using pork mince in this dish as well as soft tofu, rather than silken tofu. Silken tofu can definitely be used instead but I prefer getting a full bite of tofu in my mouth, rather than fighting with my utensils to get the silken tofu in one bite! Mapo tofu can be cooked as a vegetarian dish without the minced meat or it can be prepared with grounded beef rather than grounded pork.

What I usually eat in a day isn’t just protein, and the mapo tofu dish is just that – all protein. Hence why it is great to have two vegetable companion dishes as part of a family-style meal. The two vegetable dishes I am sharing is a typical Chinese greens dish, in this case, cooking Shanghai bok choy, and the other is steamed Chinese eggplants with a bit of a kick to it.

These 3 easy Chinese recipes are eaten together with steamed brown rice. If you only have white rice, that’s ok! It’ll taste even more delicious, but when we are trying to lower the carbs a bit, we tend to eat brown rice over white rice.
