  4. When the tofu is golden, add the garlic and mint leaves.
  5. Stir-fry for 1 minute until the garlic is lightly golden… stay with it otherwise it will burn.

  9. If using prepared, seasoned tofu, add it now.
  10. Add 75ml cold water & cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the greens have just started to wilt and the water has evaporated.
  11. season to taste with s&p
  12. Serve immediately and enjoy the soupy sauce too.

Storing

If there are any left overs, separate into serving batches suitable for either lunchbox or for dinner. This can be  stored in the fridge for a few days.

Another 1 way:

  • Add some chilli and fresh coriander to give it a Thai flavour
  • Add some beansprouts (taugé) when add the other veg at the end.
