Jan 9 2013 Whether the source is a nasty cold, a hangover I can't quite shake, or just a general feeling of malaise, I tend to turn to spicy Asian cuisine to cure my less-than-optimal mood. While it may not be traditional comfort food, when I'm feeling funky, few foods soothe better than a steaming bowl of pho or a clean-flavored tofu dish. Recently, after a particularly frustrating day, I simmered up a batch of creamy Korean poached tofu topped with scallions, red pepper flakes, and sesame seeds. Per usual, it did the trick!
