Tofu with minced pork

>> Jan 12, 2010

One very simple and appetizing dish I serve on weekday is Tofu with minced pork.

Tofu is a highly nutritious, protein-rich food that is made from the curds of soybean milk and very low in calories. It is also a good source of B-vitamins and iron, calcium and is low in saturated fat and contains no cholesterol. Tofu, I understand is also very low in sodium, making it a perfect food for people on sodium-restricted diets.

1 box of soft white tofu
1 tbsp of minced bean paste
80g minced pork
1 packet of fresh Enoki mushroom, chopped small (1cm in length) – rinse thoroughly, after chopping off ends. (Or you can substitute with fresh Shiitake mushroom, chopped small)
3 pips of garlic, chopped small
½ cup water
1 tbsp Sunflower seed oil

1.      Steam tofu for 10 minutes.
2.      Meanwhile, heat oil in wok, add in garlic, fry till fragrant but not brown.
3.      On medium heat, add in bean paste, stir fry till fragrant, add in minced pork and stir.
4.      Add in water and let it come to a simmer for 2 minutes.
5.       Add in Enoki mushroom last, let it come to a boil.
6.      Turn off flame. Drain off excess liquid in steamed tofu.
7.   Dish up minced pork gravy on top of steamed tofu.
7.      Garnish with chopped spring onions – optional, which sometimes I do not bother.
8.   Serve hot with white rice.

There, a simple, quick, delicious weekday nutritional Tofu dish for the family. Enjoy!

Oh this is nice and healthy ! What are those tiny pieces on the toufu , are those shredded dried scallops ?

My little one is not keen on meat :-(, so I have to mince & cook in fragrant & tasty gravy to tempt him. The shreds are actually chopped Enoki Mushroom (or in Cantonese, called Golden Needle Mushrooms). Too long stems may be a little chewy for kids.
Hahaha...most of my dishes are kids-friendly, I'm afraid :-)
