Adapted from a Caribbean Pot recipe
I wanted a cooling salad to go with my spicy jerked chicken and this one sounded like a good one. The mango does not fit into the Ketogenic diet, but Chris can give Myr his mango if he wishes, the rest should be OK for him. I replaced the original grapefruit with orange, because it is less sour and I prefer it.

The challenge this weekend is reconciling Jan’s diets and a guest’s Ketogenic diet. Jan has to eat low fat because she is missing her gall bladder. A keto diet eliminates most carbohydrates and emphasizes protean, oils and roughage to force your metabolism into ketosis. These diets are polar opposites.

Mapo Doufu is Jan’s favorite dish. She also prefers it the traditional way that Mao Zedong liked it, made with “stinky tofu.” Mapo Doufu actually takes days to make it properly, because first you need to let the tofu go “bad.” Fortunately she also likes it with made with fresh tofu, which is what I will be doing today.

Tonight’s dinner is Mapo Doufu and Beef with Mushrooms, neither of these dishes is heavy on the leafy greens. I need a side dish to go with them. Everyone in my household likes Chinese Broccoli (gai lan), so this is just another stir fry.
