  1. Helen, your vegan recipes make me feel at home ❤️ I am a Vietnamese vegan living in the United States and I miss eating Vietnamese food and my mom's meals so much but she doesn't know a lot of Vietnamese vegan recipes. Your videos help so much!! ❤️

  2. Thank you! Great video, as always. I binge watched some of your videos, because I recently switched to a plant based diet and heard that east and south Asian cuisine has some nice plant based dishes, even if adapted. Wasn't wrong. Have a wonderful day!

  3. I like tofu, and am always looking for new ways to prepare it. I love this grouping of beautifully presented recipes. Of course I'd love more vegan or vegetarian dishes. Thank you for your efforts.

  4. Thanks for the many different ways to cook tofu! Will try them for sure!! 😉 I asked in one of your previous video if you can show us how Vietnamese people fry the tofu because there is a really nice flavor to it. Is it msg? Or do they put something to fragrant the oil? I’d love to know.

  5. Hi Helen!! Loving your new video!! Can you share with us how to make different Vietnamese vegan noodle soups? Thank you!

  6. My favorite vegan dish is NUI XÀO ĐẬU HŨ CHIÊN VÀ NẤM MÈO (Stir fry macaroni with sliced tofu and wood ear mushroom), I think all Westerners are so familiar with macaroni so if you can come up with these recipes next time, it would attract a lot of viewers and also help them have tasty vegan dishes. Wish you could be more successful this year!

  7. Hey Helen. I love your channel, and I've made several of your recipes, all delicious! Anyway, I was wondering – for the spicy tofu, what would you suggest if I wanted to add some meat to it? Would you add minced pork, or sliced pork belly, or perhaps some chicken? Any ideas? Also – what was the hot sauce you used? You said Sade Gai or something like that 🙂

  8. Dear Helen, I love this concept of video. 1 main ingredient and different dishes made. It’s so helpful for a student who currently living abroad 😍😍

  9. Hello Helen, I've been a fan of your channel. I'd like to suggest you to add "Vegan" into your video title because that way when everyone tries to search for vegan recipes your channel will pop up immediately. Just saying that all Vegans should see this video and people who hate tofu also will have the chance to change their viewpoint after watching this. Most people I talked to who dislike tofu is usually just tried tofu by itself, raw and tasteless. It's not how we Asians eat tofu tbh lol

  10. I love all of these but am most interested in the tomato soup base one and the teriyaki! Before, I made tofu dish simply fried, or in fried rice, or sweet and sour tofu stir fry over rice, add in my soups, but nothing fancy like this!
