Mixed Vegetables Tofu
Recipe source : Adapted from Maggi's advertisement from Pearl Magazine
The original recipe uses Maggi's 5-spice chicken-mix. I did not have have that spice mix handy at home so I just substituted the 5-spice mix with my own seasoning ingredients. It turned out fine.
The hot chilli padi spiced up the sauce and lent a fiery flavour to the bland tofu. I like the crunchy bite of the french beans. It was very appetising to eat this with hot steaming rice.
This is wholesome home-cooked vegetarian fare. Tasty and nutritious.
1 block soft tofu, cut into pieces
100g french beans, diced
2 dried mushrooms, soaked and diced
1 tsp garlic, chopped
1 tbsp cooking oil
3 chilli padi, sliced ( original recipe used capsicum )
