Recipe Notes

The original of this recipe (the filling is adapted from Love, Eric, by Eric Lechasseur) called for silken tofu. However, ordinary (hard) tofu makes a better texture (slightly curdy). Use a single pack of tofu (weight 250-300g) and adjust down the other filling ingredients to match (taste test before cooking!). Also reduce the cooking time as it is not as thick (it will feel firm when cooked).
