Ingredients:
* A box of Tofu, cut into ½ inch cubes.
* 4 or 5 of black or Hiatus mushrooms, soaked in water for 2 hours, rinsed, drained and sliced.
* 4 or 5 Green Onions, washed and cut into small rings.
* 3 Tbsp spoon Cooking Oil, sliced fresh garlic or minced garlic, 1 tsp salt, ½ tsp ground pepper and 1 Tbsp soy sauce. Optional: Dry red chili pepper.

Cooking:
* Pour 2 Tbsp cooking oil into pan at medium heat for 20 seconds or so. Add Tofu, (remember to empty out the water that seep out of the Tofu into the container before you pour the container into Pan), and spread them out evenly. Pan sear at medium heat for 5 minutes or till lightly brown, sprinkle lightly some salt. Repeat the same with the other side. Remove Tofu from pan and set aside.
* Pour 1 Tbsp cooking oil into pan at medium heat for 20 seconds or so. Add garlic, and Chili pepper if desired, heat for another 20 seconds before adding in the mushroom, mix well. Cook for 5 minutes or till softened enough, stir once or twice.
* Transfer the Tofu back into pan. Add salt and soy sauce (you can add ground pepper at this time if you don’t use Chili Pepper). Mix all together to blend well. Stir in the green Onions for a minute before removing from pan.

Wha-la, enjoy!
