Steamed tofu with Minced Meat and Wolfberries

Yummy Bakes | 3:05 PM |
Tofu again? Yes ..... steamed tofu with minced meat and wolfberries, another healthy dish. Wolfberries are good for the eyes.














Appetising enough....?















Hungry now? Here goes the recipe (taken from noobcook):

Ingredients(Serves 2-3)

1 tube silken egg tofu 蛋豆腐 (150g)
1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
15 wolfberries, soaked in water till puffy (about 20 minutes)
1/2 stalk spring onion, sliced thinly or cut to wispy strips

(A) Meat and marinade
50g minced pork (can substitute with chicken)
1/2 stalk spring onion, sliced thinly
a few thin carrot slices (peeled using a vegetable peeler, stacked together and finely chopped)
1 tsp light soy sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp cornflour
dash of white pepper powder
1 tsp Chinese cooking wine

Directions
1. Cut egg tofu in half along the “dotted line” (if any), remove packaging and cut to thin and even slices. Arrange tofu pieces on a steaming plate (with a bit of depth).

2. Mix ingredients in (A) evenly in a small bowl and allow to sit for at least a few minutes.

3. Mould a small amount of the marinaded meat mixture (about 1 tsp or less) into a ball and place on top of tofu slices. Top each meat ball with a wolfberry. Drizzle 1/2 tbsp light soy over the tofu slices.

4. Steam over high heat for about 5 minutes (starting from the time the water in steamer is boiling), or until the meat is cooked (see cooking note 1 below). Before serving, use a spoon to drizzle the soy liquid collected in the plate over the tofu slices. Garnish with chopped spring onions.
