If using regular tofu, it will need to be pressed and diced.

If using deep-fried, dice it.

Then, marinate the tofu for 5 minutes.

Remove and reserve the marinade.

Trim the mushrooms and quarter the caps.

Heat the vegetable oil in a wok over high heat.

Fry the tofu until it begins to change colour.

Turn over and fry the other side, be careful not to break it.

(If using deep-fried tofu, it won't need as long for cooking).

Remove tofu and sauté garlic.

Stir-fry until it begins to brown.

Add the mushrooms and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes.

Add the marinade and stir-fry for a couple of minutes.

Return the tofu to the wok with all the seasonings plus ¼ cup water.

Cook for another 5 minutes.

Add the green onions, cook 15 seconds and serve hot.
