This is another simple, easy tofu dish which can be served with rice or eaten as a noodle dish. Add more glass noodles if you wish to have it on its own and less if serving with rice. I, actually had this for a light weekend lunch.
It tastes spicy and savoury with the noodles soaking up the flavours of the chilli bean paste. An appetising dish suitable for the young and old.The meat ingredients can be pre-fried or marinated before steaming.
1 small piece firm tofu - cut into small pieces
1/2 - 1 small bundle of glass noodles - soak for 10 minutes, drain
50 gm minced meat or with a combination of chicken and prawns
some chopped ginger, garlic and spring onions
1 tsp chilli bean paste [dao ban jiang] to taste
1 tbsp wine
salt and msg to taste
- Heat a small saucepan with some oil, add in ginger and garlic. Fry until aromatic and add in minced meat. Fry until fragrant, add in seasoning and some water. Bring to boil.
- Meanwhile, place glass noodles onto a steaming bowl, top with tofu slices. Spread fried meat ingredients over tofu. Add some water if it is too dry.
- Steam over high heat for 15-20 minutes.
- Garnish with some spring onions, serve immediately.
