Spicy Tofu Sauce

Just three main ingredients - so quick and easy but so delicious!

Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 2 Prep: 3 min Cook: 7 min

Ingredients

Lettuce 1/4
Tofu (firm) 1
Egg 1
Chicken stock 150ml
Soy sauce 2 tbsp
Mirin 2 tbsp
Sake 1 tbsp
Chinese chilli bean sauce 1 tsp
Noodle broth (mentsuyu) 1.5 tbsp
Sesame oil as required
Potato starch in a bit of water as required

Method

1
Roughly chop the lettuce and fry in sesame oil on high heat. It will shrink so cut into large pieces to start with.
2
Just before it's fully cooked, add all the sauce ingredients from stock to noodle broth. Thicken the sauce with the potato starch in water.
3
Add the tofu in the middle and break into 10-12 pieces with the spoon.
4
After 3 minutes when the tofu is cooked, pour in the beaten egg and turn the heat off, allowing it to cook on residual heat.
5
When the egg is cooked, transfer to a serving dish.

Tips & Note

You can make this hotter with more chilli bean sauce, if you like.
