  • 2 tbsp vegetarian mushroom oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp thin soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sweet soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp Thai cane sugar
  • 1 tbsp water


  • 4 tbsp sunflower oil, divided
  • 1 block (14 oz./398 g) firm tofu, drained and cut into rectangles 1 1⁄2″ in length and 1⁄2″ thick
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp minced unpeeled Thai garlic, or peeled regular garlic
  • 1 cup peeled and thinly sliced carrots
  • 1 package (5 oz./150 g) fresh shimeji mushrooms, roots discarded (about 1 cup)
  • 20 snow peas, trimmed
  • 2 stalks Chinese broccoli, leaves trimmed and peeled, stalks cut into 1″ pieces
  • 5.1 oz. (145 g) fresh flat rice noodles (if needed, steam for 30 seconds to soften, then pull apart to separate)
  • 1⁄2–1 tsp chili powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp white pepper
  • 2 lime wedges


Yield: Serves 2

Make Sauce

  1. In small bowl, combine mushroom oyster sauce, thin soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, white vinegar, cane sugar and water. Stir well and set aside.

Make Stir-fry

  1. In large wok or skillet over high heat, heat 3 tbsp of sunflower oil. When oil is hot, add tofu and cook until edges turn brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Move tofu slices to one side of wok.
  2. Add eggs to empty side. Whisk to quickly scramble eggs until fully cooked, 1 to 2 minutes. Move eggs to same side of wok as tofu. Reduce heat to medium.
  3. Add remaining tbsp of sunflower oil to empty side of wok. When oil is hot, add garlic and sauté until garlic is fragrant, 10 to 20 seconds.
  4. Add carrots, mushrooms, snow peas, Chinese broccoli, rice noodles and Sauce. Increase heat to high, stir everything together, and sauté until snow peas turn dark green and are soft to touch, 2 to
    3 minutes. Sprinkle with chili powder, to taste, and white pepper. Squeeze lime juice, to taste, over top and mix well before serving.
