Cheeseboard Bakery is a very famous bakery in Berkeley, California. Their breads are amazing and there’s always a line for their freshly baked breads. Cheeseboard also makes pizzas, and there’s a line too. They only sell vegetarian pizzas, and the menu changes weekly. What’s interesting is that they always give you extra slices of pizzas to “compensate” you waiting patiently in the line (the line sometimes gets long, but it keeps moving). They also give you some spicy green pepper sauce for your pizza… boy, it’s THIS sauce that got me hooked when I had it at the first bite. I bought a container of the sauce, and the family finished it fast! Luckily, I read the ingredient list on the container before throwing it away. Guessing the amount for each ingredients wasn’t that hard with this sauce, and I think I got it pretty close to Cheeseboard’s.

Five Spiced Tofu Appetizer Recipe

Ingredients:
4 pieces five spiced tofu
1 clove garlic– chopped
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
2 tbsp thick soy sauce– see note below
1 tbsp sesame oil
dash of ground white pepper
dash of chili powder

Method:

  1. Boil tofu in water for a few minutes. Remove tofu and dice into small pieces. While the tofu is hot, toss in remaining ingredients, mix well. Let it sit for 30 minutes before serving so the tofu soak in the flavors. Serve at cold or room temperature.

Regina’s Note:

  • Thick soy sauce: This Taiwanese style thick soy sauce can be found in Asian grocery stores that carry Taiwanese products. I like to use thick soy sauce for this dish because the soy sauce is not thin as regular soy sauce, less chance for diluting and more flavorful.
