Tofu, Shiitake Mushroooms and Vegetables

One of my kids favorites. You don't need a lot to prepare this sumptous recipe.


2 tbsp of cooking oil
4 tbsp of hoisin sauce
4 pieces of deep fried tofu
2oo gms of shiitake mushrooms
1 medium onion, quartered
1 medium carrot (I was a little inspired in cutting mine)
1 250 gms of canned young corn
100 gms of snow peas

Heat the cooking oil in a pan. Add the hoison sauce and cook for about 30 seconds. Add the deep fried tofu making sure that you flip the tofu on each side in a careful manner so as not to crumble the tofu blocks. Add the shiitake mushrooms and the onion and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the sliced carrot and the young corn. Cover the pan and cook for about 3 minutes stirring occasionally. Add the snow peas last making sure not to overcook the peas. I sometimes adjust the taste by adding a bit of black bean sauce.

Hmmm, I cook something like this, but with oyster sauce. I've never tried it with hoisin or black bean sauce. Does it come out a bit sweet?
I think there's a typo error - you don't really mean to cook the mushrooms for a couple of hours?

Thanks Kai for bringing the typo to my attention. Yes, the hoisin sauce makes the recipe sweet.
