So, I realise that I have been a tad slack with recipe posts lately and as such have decided to reward my loyal readers with a brand new original recipe.
One such reader, Angela *waves!!*, recently requested for me to put up more vegetarian friendly recipes.
I know! “Where is the bacon?”, you may ask.
But I thought, hang on, I am on a health kick here.
And healthy food can taste delicious. You just need to know how 🙂
This recipe is not only tasty, but is also very quick and easy to make.
So I present to you a delicious home cooked Tofu Stir-Fry with Ginger and Pickled Mustard Greens.
1 packet of Firm Tofu, sliced to 1cm thickness
Ginger (about the size of a thumb), sliced into sticks
1 stalk of Chinese pickled mustard greens, sliced finely
1 Shallot, chopped
2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce
1/2 Tablespoon of Fish Sauce (optional if you aren’t going Vegetarian)
1 teaspoon of Brown Sugar
5 Tablespoons of Olive Oil (can be substituted with vegetable oil)
Heat up 3 tablespoons of olive oil (or substitute with vegetable oil) in a wok on medium heat and pan fry the tofu slices until it turns golden.
Once all the tofu have been fried, dish up and set aside (on a wire rack to cool or on some paper towels to drain off excess oil).
Heat up another 2 tablespoons of oil (on medium heat) and toss in the ginger and shallot into the wok.
Once the shallot starts to brown, toss in the pickled mustard greens and continue to stir-fry for a minute.
Add the fried tofu slices into the mix and stir-fry, adding in the sauces and sugar.
Once all the tofu slices have been coated in the sauces, turn off the heat and dish up.
Serve hot with steamed rice or eat it on its own!
If you find this dish a tad too dry, you can serve it with dipping sauce such as sweet chilli sauce or hot chilli sauce.
So tell me, what is the quickest and tastiest tofu dish you have made?
