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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Heat through and serve!!
Definitely try this if you want a fast and tasty meal that’s healthy too.
