This recipe is from the March 2011 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“I grew up in a Korean restaurant. This was on all our tables as a first course. It was also like our welcome to anyone entering our home and my favorite snack as a youth. I grew up on tofu. Some kids ate cereal, pop tarts and chips. I ate cold tofu and garlic.”
