Spicy Tofu Hotpot
This Spicy Tofu Hotpot is a variety of veggies and protein simmered in a basic stock. It is more filling than a soup and the spicy broth picks up all the flavors of the ingredients. Look for fresh Chinese-style noodles in the refrigerated case of your supermarket alongside wonton wrappers.
