☆Pac-Man☆& Tofu in Tomato Sauce Recipe

Hello friends! Sorry for the late update again. There is always something happening when I try to make a post, haha. Anyhow, today I want to share a recipe with you guys that my kids really enjoy. It is tofu in tomato sauce.  The tomato’s sourness increases their appetite. I think that is why they seem to eat more food whenever they have tomato dishes.  I didn’t get rid of the tomato’s skin in this dish,  but if you don’t like it you can peel off the skin for a creamier texture. Today’s food art characters are from the Pac-Man video game. I hope you like them. I don’t think I ever played that video game but I have seen them everywhere and they look cute, so here they are. The ingredients are below, along with the tofu recipe video and the written recipe.

Have a wonderful day friends!
