Add the mushrooms and cook for a couple minutes then add in the mushroom water, a splash of light soy sauce, sugar, salt and then cook everything together. Add in the tofu and a tablespoon of chilli garlic sauce. Let it simmer for a minute then prepare your cornstarch slurry. Combine a tablespoon of cornstarch with a tablespoon of cool water and mix together. Slowly add it in whilst mixing the tofu and mushrooms together.

Original recipe:

* 2 cloves of minced garlic
* 2 x spring onion

Brown off garlic in a wok. Add tahini, light soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil and 200ml hot water into the bowl and mix well. It’ll look watery but it’ll thicken up when it’s mixed with noods.

Add noodles in, drizzle sesame sauce over and top with spring onion!

    The last dish is not vegetarian. Vegetarian means no sea food or any meat. Just for your info.

    You should totally cook some more on your channel! In these isolation days, my friend has made biang biang noodles several times – I've yet to try it, but would love to see you try! 🙂

    Also that chilli oil is the best! My uncle makes his own and keeps the entire extended family well stocked each Christmas haha

    I can’t wait to taste and cook these recipes. My stepdad is Chinese and we had many delicious authentic Chinese cooking when I was growing up. Love reminiscing on those times, and excited to try some of these out. Love your videos. I’ve said this in other videos, you are so good at describing them because as a totally blind viewer it really brings it all to life when you describe things. You are simply fabulous. Keep up the great content. Xx

    I add most of the seasonings to my normal noodle bowl minus the sesame paste. I'll definitely give that sauce a try sometime. My family is from northern china so our tomato and egg stir fry is salty. But since I went to school in Guangzhou, I also make the sweet southern tomato and egg version too. Great video Shu! I definitely wouldn't mind watching more fashion or makeup videos too.
