How to make it

  • For me, I like to put the tofu in the freezer overnight and then let it thaw before using it in this recipe, it gives it a nice chewy texture.
  • Take your tofu and squeeze all the water you can get out of it, then dice it into largish chunks (1 to 2 inches long.)
  • In a pan, heat up some of your vegan buttery spread and then place the chunks in the pan.
  • Sprinkle the topsides with pepper to taste, I only use about a third of a teaspoon or so.
  • When you are ready to turn them over, (you want them to cook until they are dark golden brown on all sides) sprinkle your minced garlic all over. Cook until the tofu looks sufficiently done. Put it aside on a plate.
  • Put more vegan buttery spread into the pan, just about two tablespoons and get it nice and melty. Then, add your eggplant, mushrooms and ginger. Saute until it begins to look and smell like it's almost finished, usually about 6 minutes or less, depending on your stove.
  • You'll want to have your soy sauce, chili oil and lemon juice mixed together in a measuring cup or small bowl. This is where you add it in, pouring it over the veggies and getting it nice and cooked. Continue to saute until it's thoroughly incorporated, about three minutes.
  • Finally, you get to add your tofu and garlic back to the mixture. Mix them all about, and turning your temperature to low. Cover and let warm for about three more minutes.
  • Serve over rice or alone.

    Most of the recipes I am looking at have not had activity in 5 years. I am baffled. This recipe looks great. Some folks might want to slice their eggplant thin, salt it generously and weight it down to remove some of the water. It takes about an hour and if you have a japanese pickle press it will work better. After it releases the water wash it in fresh water to remove excess salt and use accordingly. The consistency of the eggplant will be better, crispier, not mushy or slimmy.
