Units Scale
  • 3 blocks firm tofu, sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 6 pcs dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 425 g can straw mushrooms, sliced in half
  • 20 pcs quail eggs, boiled and shelled
  • 1 bunch gailan, trimmed
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 spring onions, sliced (green and white parts separated)
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • oil


  1. Rehydrate the shiitake mushrooms in 1 cup of boiling water. Once softened, slice them, and set aside, reserving the rehydrating liquid.
  2. In a wok, heat a generous amount of oil and fry the tofu until golden brown and crispy on the edges.

Pour the mixture into the wok and bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes, adjusting the sauce thickness to your preference by adding water or a cornstarch slurry.

  3. Hannah says:

    The crispy exterior on that tofu is immaculate! Absolutely unbeatable with that flavorful sauce and umami mushrooms.

  4. I’m with Angie! We love quail eggs… they are so much creamier than chicken eggs. And, like you, we are big fans of tofu. This is a perfect dish for us — and a really quick meal for any evening! (Believe it or not, we just cooked with gai lan for the first time.)
