Tofu And Mushroom Recipe

Today, I want to share one of my favorite recipes that combines the earthy flavors of mushrooms with the soft texture of tofu. This dish is not only delicious, but it’s also a great source of protein and packed with umami flavor. Whether you’re a vegetarian, a tofu enthusiast, or just looking to try something new, this tofu and mushroom recipe is sure to impress your taste buds.


  • 1 block of firm tofu
  • 2 cups of mixed mushrooms (such as shiitake, oyster, and cremini)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh chives for garnish


First, I like to press the tofu to remove excess water. Then I cut it into cubes and set it aside. In a hot pan, I sauté the onions and garlic until they’re soft and fragrant. Next, I add the mixed mushrooms and cook them until they’re golden brown. Once the mushrooms are cooked, I push them to one side of the pan and add the tofu cubes to the other side, allowing them to brown evenly.

After the tofu is golden and slightly crispy, I mix it with the mushrooms, and then season everything with soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper. I let everything simmer for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. Finally, I top the dish with fresh chives for a pop of color and added freshness.

Serving Suggestion:

This tofu and mushroom dish pairs wonderfully with steamed white rice or quinoa. The combination of the tender tofu and savory mushrooms creates a delightful umami-rich experience that will leave you feeling satisfied and nourished.
