Recipe: Tofu with minced chicken and Chinese mushrooms

How do you decide what to eat/cook for dinner? For us, it's simple - I'll just cook what my kids/family likes eating. My kids love tofu, so we have it for dinner often. One of our favorite tofu dishes (currently) is this tofu with minced chicken and mushrooms. 

This is a quick and easy dish which you can prepare and cook in under 15 minutes. We love to top it on our white rice and mix it up before eating. The sauce is very tasty. Made it when we had dinner guests over the other day and they loved it too!

Tofu with minced chicken and mushrooms (Chinese)
Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 5-10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves 3-4

1 piece silken tofu, cubed
150g chicken breast, minced
4 Chinese or shitake mushrooms, rehydrated and diced
2 tbsp cooking oil
1-2 tbsp mushroom sauce (or oyster sauce)
1 tsp ginger wine
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 shallot, sliced
1 spring onion, finely chopped

1. In a wok, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the garlic and shallots and cook for 1 1/2 minutes, until lightly browned.

2. Add the chicken and mushrooms, and cook for about 4-5 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Season with the mushroom sauce and ginger wine, and taste.

3. Finally, stir in the tofu and cook for a further 2 minutes. Add the spring onions and give it a quick stir. Serve immediately.

Note: You can also replace the minced chicken with minced pork.

  1. We always have tofu in the fridge, it's really versatile, tasty and healthy. Great recipe!

  2. Yen, I love tofu too and this dish that you whipped up is a very comforting one. Just this and rice and some chili padi is good enough for me!

  3. Hi Yen,
    Agree and this is a regular dish in my house too. Tasty!

  4. HI Yen,
    Delicious tofu dish! Perfect with a bowl of rice!

  5. at first i thought the green bits of shallots were peas or edamame ... which might be a nice addition to this dish too! :)

  6. Hi Yen, this is such a simple and delicious tofu dish! I guess planning dinner for kids is not easy as they are more picky...

  7. I notice you have quite an amount of gravy, in the photo.
    When do you add water?

    1. Hi Lily, to answer your question - I did not add any water, so water probably came out from the tofu during cooking.

  8. I love this chicken and tofu combo , such a simple dish yet very appetizing !

  9. wa! good dish .. yummy.. The nice old pattern bowl so appreciated.
