Black tofu in China!

Today I want to tell you about black tofu.

Black tofu is a mixture of tofu and pork blood, kind of french boudin or German blutwurst with tofu!

According to the story, a Chinese young man became a monk.
As a monk he was not allowed to eat any meat.
Once his mother came to visit him and found him really thin and in bad shape. She wanted to bring him meat (Chinese people believe that to be healthy you should eat meat) but this was forbidden! So she created a special dish, mixing tofu with pork blood: black tofu!
