My Aunties Stir-fry Tofu Recipe

I must admit, I didn't cook this.  I actually stalked my aunt with the camera when she was making this.  I'm not the best person to cook tofu so I asked her how she did it.  She found it humorous when I took out my camera.  Unfortunately, I don't have the recipe.   It was mainly the technique I was look for.  I always break up the tofu every time. 
She used firm tofu and she barely messed with the pan.  She let it sit there until it started to brown a bit
Than she added tomatoes and onions.  She slowly mixed the tomatoes and onions into the tofu
This is where it gets a bit hazy, I forgot what she added.  I know she did add vegetarian oyster sauce, soy sauce, salt, and pepper.
The tomato's juiced created a sauce and than she added can glutton.
I have yet to try this on my own and hopefully I won't break the tofu. 


  1. This looks really delicious! I used to use my camera and take photos of my mom's recipes as well :)

  2. looks like a great tofu recipe!! tell your aunt thanks!

  3. Looks yummy. My mom used to prepare it with a sofrito of garlic, onions, tomatoes. I can't remember what else she adds, soy sauce, I think.

    Martin Yan says to boil the tofu in water for a few minutes to avoid crushing it when dicing.

  4. very pretty and sounds delicious. always a laugh when i ask my mom for a recipe... measurements with 1 to 3 fingers lol so just been eyeballing my cooking growing up. thank you for the healthy recipe.
