It is good to back again to cooking vegetarian food. This time, I made this real easy Sweet and Sour Fu Chuk (fdeep ried bean curd). These fu chuk are sold in packets and they are available in many wet markets around Kuala Lumpur. You can add these pre fried fu chuk to soupy noodles and they are really tasty.
Here is my Vegetarian Sweet and Sour Fu Chuk recipe.
Fu Chuk, 10 pcs
Tomato Sauce, 5 tablespoons
Sugar, 1/2 teaspoon
Soya sauce, 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Tomato, 1 pc, cut into 5 pcs
Cucumber, 1, cut into bite sizes
Onions (optional), 1 pc, cut into 4
Garlic (optional), 3 cloves, chopped finely
Heat up wok and put in a little vegetable oil. Saute garlic until fragrant and add in the onions. Stir fry for a short while and add in a little water. Pour in the tomato sauce, soya sauce, salt to taste and sugar. Put in the cucumber and fu chuk. Fry for a short while and add in the tomato. Serve while still hot. Kids love this dish!

My neighbour gave me the recipe for this dish. Actually, it is a very simple dish to prepare and taste real good too. I bought some fresh shitake mushroom from the local hypermarket and cooked them immediately upon reaching home. The creamy savoury sauce goes along well with the mushroom.
Here is my Shitake Mushroom with Butter and Soya Sauce Recipe.
Shitake Mushroom, 1 bowl, cut into halves
Butter, 1 tablespoon
Light soya sauce, 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Garlic, 3 cloves, chopped finely
Heat up wok and pour in a little vegetable oil. Saute garlic till fragrant, add in the butter and light soya sauce. Throw in the shitake mushroom. If the dish is not salty enough, you can add in a little salt. Serve while still hot.

I always keep a few packs of Japanese soft tofu in my fridge because I can use to cook up a simple dish in a jiffy. In this Vegetarian Steamed Tofu with Thai Basil recipe, I used cylindrically packed Japanese soft tofu that I bought off the shelf from the local hypermarket. This type of tofu is very easy to prepare and you will a a dish cooked up for your family in a short time!
Here is my Vegetarian Steamed Japanese Soft Tofu with Thai Basil Leaves Recipe....
Japanese Soft Tofu, 1 pack
Thai Basil Leaves, 20 leaves
Shallots, 3 pcs
Light Soya sauce, 3 tablespoons
Dark Soya Sauce, 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste
Arrange Japanese Soft Tofu on a steaming plate and steam at high heat for 20 minutes. While the tofu is in the steamer, you can prepare the sauce separately. Heat up wok and put in 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil (corn, sunflower, palm, rapeseed or canola oil). Add in the shallots and fry until golden brown. Add light soya sauce, dark soya sauce and a little water. Add salt and sugar to taste. Throw in the Thai Basil Leaves. Stir fry for a short while. Pour the sauce over the steamed tofu and serve while still hot!
