Stir Fry Tofu With Mint Mango And Enoki

Yesterday, I was in the mood do a bit of cooking, actually I felt remorseful becoz my other half had to endured those one dish meal I prepared for him lately :p . So I decided to go back to cooking rice for him, being the staple food for him…haha I can go without rice for a month but he can’t, he is a ‘fun thung ’ meaning he is rice taker :))) So I pan fried a fish ( cuming up in my next post ) and cooked this savoury tofu dish for us.

I have been cooking tofu the same normal way day in day out , either steamed them with fish paste or baked them with toppings but for this time , I stir fried them with mint leaves, mango and enoki with a dash of paprika and chilli flakes with lotz of chopped garlic and olive oil. Well…the beautiful exotic aroma filled the room as I was frying this dish…Daddy ran to the kitchen asking me “ what are you cooking that even Chaco sneezed! ” The garlic blends well with the paprika and chilli flakes powder and when the mint leaves were added into the dish…mamamia! Perfect combo and thus making this bland tofu into a delicious dish. If you love garlic & mint leaves that is…this is one best way to cook the bland tofu.

I used the firm white tofu and some remnant seaweed tofu
to make this dish

this dish can be eaten alone or with hot rice

bland tofu can be turned into a tasty one with lotz of
chopped garlic and paprika and the chilli flakes will make it
spicy....this tofu dish is tasty and aromatic !

Stir Fry Tofu With Mint, Mango & Enoki


2 pieces of firm white tofu – diced
½ piece of seaweed tofu – from the supermarket

some mint leaves – washed and drained
1 firm ripe mango – diced

5 pips of garlic – chopped
1 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of chilli flakes
salt to taste
3 tbsp of olive oil


Pan fry the diced tofu with olive oil on a non-stick pan. Push it aside and sauté the garlic till fragrant but not browned . Add in the enoki to the tofu and continue to stir fry till the tofu and enoki and well combined. Add in the mint leaves and mango. Sprinkle the paprika and chilli flakes onto the tofu mixture and stir fry till aromatic. Add salt to taste. Dish up and serve hot.

This dish can be eaten alone or serve with hot rice.



  1. One of the reasons I learned to cook is that I couldn't stand my husband's 24-7 Spaghetti Bolognaise...that's the only dish he can cook...
    Tofu with mint and mango flavours, looks very good to me.

  2. The tofu looks great.

    It's funny, my hubby REALLY misses his rice when he doesn't have any for a few days... Actually, we haven't had any rice in a while, I bet he'll crave some soon! ;)

  3. This is a very appetizing dish for summer!

  4. Mmmmm...this is something new with mango. yummy

  5. haha my hubs is a fun thung too, but I prefer noodles/ pasta. This dish sounds perfect with rice!

  6. My (vegetarian) hubby loves this dish. Enoki are perfect for the texture of the tofu. I also make it with pineapple. check at http://www.phamfatale.com/id_354/title_Vegetarian-Sweet-and-Sour-Pork/
