IMGP2020.jpg

INGREDIENTS

12 medium white/chestnut mushrooms

250g firm tofu
1/2 Tbls chinese chili bean sauce 'toban jan' (or similar chili bean paste - NOT hot sauce)
1/2 Tbls soya sauce
1 clove garlic
2 Tbls panko
Salt & pepper to taste

Flour to dust mushrooms
1 fresh lime


Directions:
1. Mix pressed tofu, chili bean sauce, soya sauce, grated garlic, panko, salt and pepper in a bowl until well combined.
2. Cut the stalks off the mushrooms, mince them and add to tofu filling.
3. Put mushrooms upside-down, dust lightly with flour. Put a small ball of the tofu filling into each mushroom, making the shape by pressing softly. Dust filled mushrooms again with flour.
4. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan. Place the mushrooms tofu filling side down, cover pan with a lid, and fry mushrooms until browned. Flip the mushrooms over, cover and fry again. Squeeze lime over cooked mushrooms and EAT!



Mushrooms are one of our favourite foods. In Japan, we used to eat so many kinds of mushroom, like shimeji, enoki, shitake and maitake. But these kinds of mushroom are too expensive to buy every day in Scotland so that's why we are always eating the common white or brown ones.
In this recipe, you can enjoy their nice flavour. The mushrooms flavor with the spicy tofu is the best match with beer!

Vegan Memo:
- Please press the tofu well. I recommend you microwave the tofu for a couple of minutes before pressing. It's a trick we use in Japan to get the water out of the tofu. It's faster, I think!
- Of course, you can use shitake mushrooms instead of white mushrooms!

Vegan yummy

Your blog pages and food look amazing. I don't picture Scotland as having a lot of choices in food. It looks like you are a food artist. Thank you for creating this website and posting the recipes. Now I'm hungry. I will definately try some, if not all, these recipes.
