Steamed tofu with minced turkey

steamed tofu and turkey.jpgWe needed a quick dinner tonight, for today we are watching “Sunday in the Park with George” by Stephen Sondheim and we have 2 hours to get to the theatre. A peek into the fridge and I came up with this steamed tofu dish served over steaming rice.

12oz / 350g firm tofu
10oz minced turkey
1/2 green onion
2 water chestnuts, finely diced
1/2 salted egg including yolk, finely diced
1 tsp corn starch
1 tsp sesame oil
Salt
Pepper

Serves 2

Finely chop 1/2 of the green onions. Thinly slice the other half and reserve for garnishing.
Add chopped green onions, water chestnuts, salted egg to minced turkey. Roughly combine with a few stirs.
Add cornstarch, sesame oil, a dash of salt and pepper. Mix well.
Cut tofu into 8 cubes. Scoop out a teaspoon from the centers, creating a well in each cube of tofu.
Fill the wells with turkey mixture.
Steam for 10 minutes.
Garnish with remaining green onions.

Optional:
Drizzle 1 tbsp soy sauce/1 tsp oil mixture over tofu before serving.
