Tofu in Black Bean Sauce

I cannot even begin to tell you how lip smacking delicious this dish is. You can very easily overeat so apologies for that! It is best eaten as soon as you are ready to eat as it may get a bit soft if you leave it for too long. However that does not diminish its taste at all @sarchakra
