Vegetarian Dish - Cabbage With Fermented Red Beancurd

Yesterday was Sunday and I thought perhaps I should cook a vegetarian dish with half cabbage, the balanced half actually after cooking the first half with sea prawns . A very delicious vegetarian dish with a combination of two types of canned mushrooms - straw mushrooms and button mushrooms, fried beancurd skin, wood ear fungus, glass noodles, carrots and cabbage. The most hero ingredient is the fermented red beancurd. Hubby likes it with not too much gravy but yet every piece of ingredients are well coated with the thick gravy of the fermented red beancurd . Of course, ginger slices and chopped garlic are important ingredients too , without them, the dish will not be flavour, they h add flavours to the dish. My late mom cooked this dish well. I couldn't recreated this dish like hers but will do for now.  Hubby enjoyed the dish eventhough he is a meat eater. I added a meat dish for him - canned Beef Curry ( Adabi brand ) A complete meal for two person.

Cabbage With Fermented Red Beancurd

Fried beancurd skin- for vegetarian dish

3 cloves of Garlic - chopped
3 slices of ginger
3 cubes of fermented red beancurd + 3 tbsp of  fermented red beancurd liquid
salt and chicken powder to taste.

Heat up 2 tbsp of cooking oil, saute garlic and ginger till fragrant, add in fermented red beancurd cubes and liquid, stir fry till cubes are mashed up.
Add in the mushrooms, wood ear fungus, fried beancurd skin. Continue stir fry for a few minutes, add in cabbage and stir fry till well combined. Add in water enough to soften the cabbage ( adjust accordingly- I added just enough for a thicker gravy )  and add in salt and chicken powder to taste. Once the cabbage has soften, add in the soaked glass noodles and carrots. Once carrot has slightly soften ,off heat and serve with rice.

Enjoy !
