I want to thank Linda for sharing this healthy egg tofu and mushroom dish. I hardly prepare dishes for lunch and dinner. It's always quick & easy one-pot meals for me. I had some time this weekend so I decided to give this dish a try.
It's actually a simple dish to whip up. The only tedious and time consuming part was deep frying the egg tofu. I rarely deep fry food so this step was messier and took more time. Once this was done, the rest was really very easy to put together. My egg tofu was not as beautifully deep fried as those sold outside but the taste was just as great!
Hubby gave this a big thumbs up. Yeah!!
