Vegetarian spicy tofu and celery salad
About 2 years ago, my husband and I fell in love with a spicy smoked tofu and celery salad at Szechuan Gourmet on West 39th street. We’ve been going back ever since for this specific dish and haven’t seen it on any other menu in the city. So you can understand my surprise when I saw that Marc Bittman, NY Times food columnist and author of ‘How to cook everything’ fell in love so deeply with the same dish that he decided to write about it and print the recipe! This tofu dish is like no other dish; the flavors are quite mild but the spiciness of the oil will make your lips tingle! What makes it so special is the spiced oil and its unforgettable aromatics.
