For the next few days, we’ll be featuring recipes that were sent to us by Chef Joseph Muldoon of Atlantic City. Enjoy!

Jade Pesto Steamed Tofu

1 ½ pounds Extra Firm Tofu (equates to four 6 oz. portions)
1 Bunch Mint
2 Bunches Thai Basil
2 Bunches Cilantro
3 Tbs. Fresh Ginger, Peeled
3 Tbs. Fresh Garlic, Peeled
1 cup Vegetable Oil
1 Tbs. Mirin

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped to make a thick herb sauce. It is recommended to slice the tofu into two 3 oz. pieces or three 2oz. pieces so that the pesto flavor is infused properly and evenly. *Use a stovetop steamer set up
