INGREDIENTS:

  • 14 ounce(s) water-packed firm tofu, rinsed
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 2 tablespoon(s) canola oil, divided
  • 2 clove(s) garlic, smashed
  • 2 scallions, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) (4 ounces) sliced white mushrooms
  • Sichuan Sauce

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Place tofu on several paper towels and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Turn tofu over, sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
