Tofu Guisado

Meatless Monday: Yes, I have declared that today's gonna be a meatless monday. A healthy dish which is not only good for my diet but for our entire household. And I have to make sure that even my little girl will eat it.
For today, I made Tofu Guisado. Simple yet tasty. To make a really nice tofu dish, you have to make sure that you buy the good if not the best produced tofu in the market. I have always preferred Chinese Tofu, the one you can find at SM supermarkets. It's really soft (like you're slicing a cheesecake), but doesn't sog or break when you slice and toss in the pan. It's so good to the bite!
Tofu Guisado

Ingredients:
320g Chinese Tofu (this is a big block already)
bunch of pechay (pak choi),  ~ this is about 4 cups when chopped
1 big ripe tomato, seeded and chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp cooking oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cup of water

How to prepare:
> In a pan, fry the tofu until light brown. When cooked, removed the tofu from pan, set aside. Remove excess oil, leave just about 1 tbsp of oil.
> In the same pan,  sauté onion, garlic and tomatoes. Add soy sauce and water. Simmer for about 2 minutes.
> Add the pechay leaves, season with salt and pepper. Then add the previously cooked tofu. Simmer for another minute. And we are done!
