14 ounces tofu
water-packed firm, rinsed
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 cloves garlic
2 scallions, spring or green onions
trimmed and chopped
4 ounces mushrooms
sliced white, 1 1/2 cups
Sichuan sauce:
3 tablespoons vegetable stock
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon soy sauce, sodium reduced
½ teaspoon sesame oil
¼ teaspoon cornstarch
¼ teaspoon red chili peppers
or to taste


Place tofu on several paper towels and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt.

Turn tofu over, sprinkle with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, place more paper towels on top and weight the tofu down with a plate. Set aside for 5 minutes.

Cut the tofu into roughly 1-inch cubes.

Heat a 14-inch flat-bottomed wok or large skillet over high heat until a bead of water vaporizes within 1 to 2 seconds of contact.

Swirl in 1 tablespoon oil; add garlic and scallions and stir-fry until fragrant, 10 seconds.

Add mushrooms and stir-fry until just beginning to soften, 1 minute. Transfer to a plate.

Swirl the remaining 1 tablespoon oil into the pan, reduce the heat to medium, add the tofu and pan-fry, turning midway through cooking, until it begins to brown, about 3 minutes.

Swirl in Sichuan Sauce and the mushroom mixture; increase the heat to high and stir-fry until the tofu is just heated through and the sauce clings to it, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Discard the garlic. Serve immediately.


For the Sichuan Sauce:

Whisk broth, tomato paste, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, oil, cornstarch and red pepper in a small bowl.
