Salmon Tofu Miso Casserole

The flu bug is going around and both my husband and my toddler girl are down with flu. I had initially intended to cook salmon tofu balls but seeing that they were sick, I decided that something less “heaty” would be good.

I chanced upon a recipe on epicurious and did some modifications to get this yummylicious dish that even my rather fussy toddler liked it!
