Recipe: Tofu Asparagus Stir-Fry(芦笋炒豆腐)

I haven’t shared many of these super easy Chinese vegetable preparations yet! These are the most common foods in Chinese households, usually with a little meat. This recipe is vegetarian though.

Also I made this recipe, not adapted from a blog or book! Yay!

Ingredients: you can half the recipe but that leads to leftover ingredients

1 bunch asparagus, cut bite size pieces

1 block tofu, cut cubes bite size

1 to 2 tbsp oil

salt, sugar, white pepper powder

Directions:

1. Heat oil in wok or pan.

2. Add asparagus. Stir fry until almost to your desired texture. I prefer al dente at this point.

3. Add tofu, salt, sugar, pepper to taste. I used 1/2 tsp sugar and about 1/4 tsp of the rest. Stir fry until hot.

4. Remove from pan. Done!

Variations: a little ginger and garlic and green onions: add all to oil except green part of green onion, then saute until fragrant (few sec) then add asparagus and continue, add the green onion right after the tofu.
