Servings 2


  • 400 g tofu
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 3 shiitake mushroom fresh or dry are both okay
  • 5 stalks green onions or chives
  • 2 tbsp oil for frying
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • 150 ml water
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp vegan oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar


  • Dry the tofu with a paper towel / kitchen cloth. Cut the tofu into 4 pieces according to your liking. (I cut it into half vert
  • Fry the tofu in hot oil until all sides are golden. Set aside and let them cool.
  • Cut the mushroom and half of the carrot into small pieces. Put the pieces in a bowl.
  • Slit the inside (white part) of the fried tofu pieces and put in the same bowl with the mushroom and carrot bowl.
  • Mash the tofu and mix with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stuff the tofu pockets with the mixture.
  • Cut the white part of the spring onion. Blanch the spring onions / chives with hot water for about 20 seconds. Wrap them around the tofu pockets and make a knot.
  • Combine the ingredients to make the sauce. Steam the tofu pockets in the sauce for 10 minutes.
  • Garnish and serve with a bowl of hot rice. Enjoy!


Chives would be easier to wrap the tofu so get them if you can access them.
