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!

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.
