Steam Tofu with Minced Chicken

Here is another quick and easy dish I whipped up for my dinner. A simple yet delicious dish.

Ingredients for Tofu

1 packet of soft tofu (cut into square)
100 grms of minced chicken
1 spring onion - chopped
1 egg white
1 tsp of soy sauce
1 tsp of oyster sauce
few dash of sesame oil
1/2 tsp of corn flour
a few dash of white pepper

Sauce :

1 cup of chicken stock
1 tbsp of oyster sauce
1/2 tsp of sugar
1 tbsp of soy sauce
some pepper
1 tsp of cornflour + 2 tbsp of water

Mix all the tofu ingredients together except the tofu and let it marinate for half an hour.

Place the cut tofu on a plate and with a little spoon remove a small potion of on the top part of the tofu. Top it with some minced meat.

Bring the steamer to boil and place the tofu into the steamer. Steam for 10 min or until the meat is cooked. Drain off the water.

Bring the sauce ingredient to boil except for the cornflour. When is boil add in the corn flour solution.

Pour the sauce over the tofu and garnish with spring onions, chili and serve warm.

Everyone in my family loves tofu .. especially my eldest .. Gert one question : if I omit the chicken would it still taste and look as good as yours ? .. Now I've got two vegetarian in my house ... my hubby has gone to the other side! .. the vegetarian side of the household hehe

Envy, tofu is a good source of protein for vegetarian. You can replace the chicken with mash tofu, carrots and mushroom. Bind it all with beaten egg and steam it. Hope this help.
