My Little Corner of the World

I tried cooking a vegetarian dish consisting of browned firm tofu and shiitake mushroom. You can add other mushroom is you want. Other root vegetables e.g. potato or carrots can be added to this dish but it might change the flavour.

The firm tofu is pat dry then roasted. You can deep fry it also. The shiitake mushroom is soaked in water and left in the fridge overnight to hydrate it.
