Tofu in Oyster Sauce

 

Tofu is a very healthy food with a high protein content and no cholesterol. Tofu by itself has not much taste but can be very tasty when cooked in various ways. Tofu can be bought fresh or canned - both taste good anyway.

Here is a simple and tasty tofu dish which can accompany boiled or fried rice.

 

Ingredients:

* Tofu, fresh or canned

* Sliced meat:  pork, chicken, veal

* Thick soya sauce

* Salt

* Cooking oil

 

Method:

Cut the tofu in rectangular pieces and chop up some small onions and garlic. Slice some meat (pork, veal or chicken) into thin strips.

Heat a tablespoon of corn, peanut or olive oil in a frying pan then add in the chopped onions and garlic. Fry briskly until slightly brown then add in the meat. Fry again to cook the meat then add in the tofu. Stir occasionally (taking care not to break the tofu) until the tofu has taken colour then add in some thick oyster sauce. Add a bit of salt. Stir fry for another minute then serve on plate as an accompaniment to your rice dish.

Serve hot with white rice.

Garlic, Olive oil, Chilly and Tiger Prawns Spaghetti

 

 

Ingredients:

* Spaghetti

* One piece of garlic

* Olive oil

* One red or green chilly chopped into rough pieces

* 5 or 6 large prawns

* Parsley

* White wine

 

Method:

Bring to boil a pot of water and add in about 150 gm - 200 gm spaghetti. Let the spaghetti cook (check with the instructions on the box for cooking time) until it is just done ("al dente"). Normally, this can take between 3 - 8 minutes depending on the brand of spaghetti you buy so check the instructions.

In the meantime cut a piece of garlic into thin slices. Put a tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan and fry the garlic under small fire until it is slightly coloured. Add in the cut chilly.

Fry for another minute then add in the prawns and some white wine. Let cook another minute until the prawn changes colour - do not overcook the prawns or they will shrink and the meat will be tougher.

Add in the cooked spaghetti with some parsley and mix eveything for a few seconds. Serve hot accompanied with a glass of chilled white wine.
