Ingredients

2 fresh tofu blocks
2 pak choi
Handful of baby corn cobs
Handful of mange tout
5-6 oyster mushrooms
1 pepper, sliced
8 garlic cloves, peeled
1 carrot, peeled and sliced
1/4 red onion, sliced
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Pinch of salt
1-2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
Cornflour to thicken
Spring onion to garnish




Method
1. For this recipe we are using quite chunky slices of tofu, but you can cube the tofu, just reduce the frying time accordingly. Heat some oil in a frying pan and add the tofu carefully. Frying the tofu adds a lovely golden colour and helps to make it sturdier. Fry for a few minutes on each side, carefully turning, as the tofu is quite delicate. Once cooked, remove and keep warm.

2. For the stir-fry, heat some oil in a frying pan and add the garlic, red onion, mange tout, carrots and baby corn cob. Stir and then add the pak choi, oyster mushrooms, soy sauce, oyster sauce. Add a good splash of the Shaoxing rice wine and ginger, then the tofu and 1-2 tablespoons of water.

3. Fry for a minute, whilst stirring and then add the sesame oil. Put the lid on the pan and allow to simmer for 1-2 minutes.

4. Add the peppers, replace the lid and simmer again for 1-2 minutes

5. Finally add cornflour if the sauce needs thickening, serve and garnish with fresh spring onions.
