Ingredients
  • 1/2 x 340g pack Morinaga Silken Firm Tofu, drained
  • 1tbsp groundnut oil
  • 1tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1cm piece root ginger, peeled and grated
  • 115g shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 115g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 2tbsp reduced-salt soy sauce
  • 4 star anise
  • Coriander leaves, to serve
Method
  • Cut the tofu into small cubes, put on a piece of triple-thickness kitchen paper and cover with another 3 layers. Press gently with the palm of your hand to remove some of the excess moisture.

  • Put half of both oils in a frying pan and cook the tofu for 5-10 mins until it starts to colour, then set aside to drain on clean kitchen paper.

  • Meanwhile, heat the rest of the oil in a large pan and cook the spring onions, chilli and ginger over a low heat for 5 mins, stirring often.

  • Add the mushrooms, stock cube, soy sauce, star anise and 1L water. Heat until simmering, then partially cover the pan and simmer for 5 mins.

  • Add the tofu and simmer gently for another 5 mins. Sprinkle with coriander leaves and serve.
