Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Instructions

  1. Cut tofu into equal triangles. Using a knife, carefully cut around the edges of the long side of triangle. Make the incision slightly more than half way through the tofu. Make sure you dont cut through.
  2. Use a teaspoon to remove the tofu from the middle of each triangle. Be very careful to keep the pouch intact. Set aside the tofu that is take out from the middle.
  3. In small bowl, mix minced pork, tofu crumb, oyster sauce, soya sauce, white pepper, sesame oil, and corn flour.
  4. With a teaspoon, scoop the filling and stuff in to the middle part of the tofu as much as you could fit in. Shape the stuffing with your hands. Repeat this to the rest of the tofu pieces.
  5. Heat up a pan with oil enough to pan fry, pan fry each side of the tofu until golden brown. It takes about 15- 20 minutes to brown each piece of tofu and cook through the stuffing. Once all cooked, set tofu aside.
  6. Use back the same pan, drizzle some oil, put in the chopped garlic and cook until fragrant and slightly brown. Then, put in carrots and courgette/zucchini. Add in the sauce and cook until tender. Add in more water if necessary.
  7. Add back the cooked tofu to warm up. Coat tofu with the sauce. Sprinkle some chili flakes if you wish. Serve warm.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can reduce your sodium intake by choosing lower-sodium soy sauce.

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

  • If you prefer lean meat and you can't find ground pork (which is generally leaner than ground beef), look for extra lean ground beef, ground turkey, or even ground bison.

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

Price Tips

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • Make sure you cook ground meat thoroughly. Grinding meat creates a lot of surface area that bacteria can grow on, so eating undercooked ground meat poses a real health risk.

  • Carrots can be stored in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks. The starch in the carrots will turn to sugar over time, but this is not a problem, they'll just taste sweeter. The academy lesson about carrots contains more useful information.

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

Green Tips

  • According to the Non-GMO Project, about 90% of the canola oil in the United States is made from genetically modified rapeseed, so if this issue is important to you be sure to buy certified organic or certified GMO-free canola oil!

  • Choose organic, pasture raised pork to avoid antibiotics, hormones, and genetically modified feed. It is better for your health, for the animals, and for the planet. If you're worried about your grocery budget, try eating vegetarian meals more often during the week so you can splurge on better meat on the weekends.
