Easy & Delicious Stir-fried Tofu



I like healthy food. Healthy food to me is that the dish has to be colorful, with lean skinless chicken breasts, fish or tofu. I also cook with lots of fresh garlic, ginger, scallion, shallot or onion. The above dish is healthy to me because it has celery, carrot, straw mushroom and tofu. It's a vegetarian dish actually. This dish is so easy to cook with only two seasonings and yet the taste is so divine. Tigerfish cooked a similar version recently too.





Ingredients:

7oz soft tofu, cut into cubes
1/2 can of straw mushrooms, drained
1 medium carrot, sliced
2 sticks of celery, cut
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup of water
2 Tbsp. of cooking oil

Seasonings:
2 Tbsp. oyster sauce
2 Tbsp. Japanese white rice wine

Method:

1. Heat the wok with oil. Add in garlic, fry until golden. Add in celery and carrot. Stir-fry until almost cooked. Add in the straw mushrooms. Stir-fry well and add in the seasonings and water.

2. Lastly add the cubes tofu, fry until heated through and mixed well with the sauce and veggies. Serve hot.

Muminmiri,
My little one eats everything. But the older one is quite picky, she doesn't want to eat mushroom, onion and celery.

Sweet Jasmine,
Like that susah lah. I bet they like the Jap. dashi stock version with bonito flakes on top eh.

BBOven,
I like your aunt version by adding chilli padi and long beans! I keep my dried mushroom stem for boiling soup only. But next time must add long beans with chilli padi, great idea! Thanks!
