This Shimeji Mushrooms with Egg Tofu Recipe is made in tze char style that comes with a savoury sauce that you can use to douse over your rice. Yum.
The advantage of this recipe lies in its flexibility so you can easily create different versions of it by using a variety of ingredients. This time, I’ve combined 3 of my favourites – egg tofu, shimeji mushrooms and bok choy. You can also go for prawns + kai lan + shiitake mushrooms or chicken + button mushrooms + spinach. Whatever combination you and your family like. 😉
To keep this dish purely vegetarian, swap out the chicken stock for vegetable stock instead.
And for low carb dieters who prefer to turn this into a one-dish meal (that’s what I do for my lunches sometimes), add your favourite proteins to bulk up the dish. Works extremely well with most meat and seafood.

Very easy to make but a bit bland. Very filling dish and a great side dish. Next time I’ll spice it up 👍
Loved the mix of textures. Added prawns. Agree with the other commenter that it was a bit bland. Any ideas how to add a bit of umph?
Try using a rich chicken broth to boost the overall sweetness of the dish. If not, you can add a touch of light soy sauce or a pinch of salt – adjust to what you like.
