Stir Fry Tofu

Stir Fry Tofu “Have a mouth as sharp as a dagger, but a heart as soft as tofu” – Chinese proverb.
When I saw that proverb, I just had to rush out and grab a pack of tofu for lunch today. That I wanted to try out a new product (well, new to me) was neither here not there.

Lee Kum Kee’s Vegetarian Stir Fry Sauce is a fantastic product that I’ve been looking for, for a long time. I think the last time I had something similar must have been over 10 years ago when I was living in Swansea, but I thought that they must have stopped making it. It was with faint hopes that I asked in a small oriental store, Ardencapel Oriental that opened earlier this year. The chap I spoke to looked bemused, but said he’d keep an eye out for it. Yesterday, 2 bottles mysteriously appeared. Thank you, unknown gentleman, who I’ve not seen in the store since.

Lee Kum Kee Vegetarian Stir Fry Sauce

 

Stir Fried Tofu with Chinese Vegetables

  1. 396g Cauldron Tofu
  2. 300g pack of mushroom stir fry vegetables
  3. 300g pack of beansprouts
  4. 5 tablespoons of Lee Kum Kee’s Vegetarian Stir-Fry Sauce
  5. Rapeseed oil for frying.

Steps To follow

  • Open the tofu over the sink  and drain the liquid.
  • Pat the tofu dry with kitchen paper.
  • Cut it in half lengthwise and then slice the blocks into widths of about half a centimeter wide.
  • Heat a large frying pan, or wok, with the oil added and wait until it’s smoking hot.
  • Add the squares of tofu, a few at a time and fry until crisp. Once all the squares are fried, let the remaining oil get back to it’s previous hot temp and add the mushrooms and the beansprouts.
  • Once they’ve cooked (no more than 5 to 10 minutes, depending on what vegetables are included, and remember to keep moving them round the pan – the operative word is ‘stir’), add the stir fry sauce and the crisp tofu and make sure that everything is well coated.

It was deli sh!!!!! 3 out of 4 of us asked if there was any more (I’m the 4th – I didn’t ask, because I already knew there wasn’t any).
