Braised tofu with shitake mushroom...红烧香菇豆腐

This is another dish that we had in the vegetarian cafe that our friend brought us to. It is Braised tofu with shitake mushroom. The dish here comes in a small portion with steamed rice for only 1 person. Each of us ordered different dish so we can share. 
  再来一道'菇'的料理吧!! 这道也是在同一家素店其中一道招牌菜, 红烧香菇豆腐. 这家的料理都是小小份. 每一份都有配上一碗百饭只共一人噢! 我们只好一人order一份彼此分享.


Look at this slice of tofu, it soft and juicy (it soaked up the gravy while braising) 
厚厚的一片红烧豆腐, 柔软, 咬一口,浓浓的红烧香菇汁喷发在口里..好吃的不行 :p


This is actually a vegetarian dish but i added some slice meat (chicken or pork) inside for more flavour. Again if you want it to be a vegetarian dish just omit the slice meat.
这道原本是道素菜不过我呢加了点肉片吊味 但是如果您要素的可以不放肉片.

Homemade tofu...HERE
自制白豆干...这里


 There is tofu, shitake mushrooms, leek, carrot and some seasoning in this dish. The tofu is slice into 4 thick strips  (a piece) and shallow fried until it is lightly brown.  Saute the chopped white part of the leek* with some oil then stir fried in slice meat(if you are adding) leek leaves, carrot and shitake mushrooms in a wok and seasoning and keep frying for 2-3 minutes until all veges are soften . Pour in some mushroom stock**, add in tofu, simmer until carrots is soften (5-8 minutes) then thicken the gravy with some corn starch water. Serve hot with steamed rice.

*White part of the leek can use as a garlic, just clean and chopped the white part finely.
**Clean and rinse the dried shitake mushroom. Soaked it until it is soften and keep the stock for cooking.



这道料理的材料有豆腐, 香菇, 胡罗卜片, 红蒜和调味料. 先把豆腐炸一炸后备用. 把蒜白*切幼暴香, 加肉片(预先用酱青和太白粉掩), 放入胡罗卜片, 香菇, 蒜叶和调味料拌炒2-3分钟. 加入豆腐和香菇水**焖至胡罗卜软(大概5-8分钟). 加入太白粉水让汁浓点. 起锅就可以趁热配饭享用^_^

*蒜 白是蒜的头白色的部分,切幼就可以当蒜米用了.
**把香菇洗一洗,再用清水浸泡至发及柔软. 把浸泡的香菇水留起, 备用.
