Braised Tofu With Baby King Oyster Mushrooms [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan




For the Dish:

  • 10 ounces baby king oyster mushrooms, brushed to remove dirt
  • 1 14-ounce block firm tofu, cut into cubes
  • 2 slices of ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Oil, for frying

For the Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon mushroom seasoning
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fried crispy soybean paste (optional)
  • Goji berries, for topping
  • Cilantro, for garnish


  1. Add all of the sauce ingredients to a small bowl, mix well, and then set aside.
  2. Heat oil in pan at medium heat. Pan-fry the tofu until each side is golden brown and then divide into serving dishes.
  3. Heat the pan over medium heat, add both the ginger and baby king oyster mushrooms, and stir-fry with 1/2 teaspoon of salt for about 2 minutes.
  4. Pour the sauce ingredients and goji berries into the heated pan. Gently stir, until sauce slightly thickens and boils.
  5. Pour the sauce over tofu and garnish with cilantro and pepper.
  6. Serve immediately with rice.


If you cannot find baby kind oyster mushrooms, you can substitute them with regular oyster mushrooms or shiitake mushrooms. If you cannot find the fried soy bean paste, you can leave it out completely, or add a tablespoon of black bean paste instead. These can be found in the sauce sections of most Asian grocery stores.

That looks nice, but I'll never be a big fan of tofu.
