Ratatouille with Tofu

Photo: Randy Mayor; Styling: Kathleen Kanen, Eunice Mun

This dish epitomizes the fusion of French and Asian cuisine that is the hallmark of Helene An's cooking inheritance: Ratatouille is French, and tofu decidedly Asian. Serve with rice noodles. Offer the extra Pesto Coulis as a dipping sauce with crusty French bread; it's also nice tossed with hot rice or pasta.
