Rob’s Diet, about 50% of the time

involves iterations of this dish, with these ingredients (depending on what’s around)

  • Mu-Er (dried woodear mushrooms)
  • 5 spice pressed tofu
  • chicken breast, cut into small chunks or strips.
  • peppers (optional)
  • soy sauce
And I must say, this is delicious. To the extent where I biked to the Chinese Supermarket on 8th Ave, Sunset Park and stocked up on Mu-er and discounted packs of pressed tofu. This stuff is gooood . And best of all, easy to make! With a little advance preparation, this shouldn’t take you more than 20-30 minutes, from start to finish.
  1. The night before, soak a handful of dried mu-er in a plastic container. I keep containers of shitake and wood ear mushrooms packed in containers in my fridge for easy use whenever I need them.
  2. Chop up the mushrooms if necessary. Heat oil in a skillet, toss in the chicken, mu-er, tofu, and soy sauce, in that order. Add extra chicken broth or water to keep everything nice and moist and not dried out.
  3. Heat through and serve!!

Definitely try this if you want a fast and tasty meal that’s healthy too.
