Diced tofu and meat glistening in that dangerously red sauce served over rice. This popular Chinese dish originating from the Si Chuan province, well-known for their tongue-numbing cuisines, serves up as a comfort food for chilli lovers anywhere. While retaining its authentic spicy flavours, we have developed a meat free version of this Si Chuan classic using tofu and meat free pieces.
Quorn Meat Free Pieces is made with Mycoprotein, a nutritionally healthy source of protein derived from fermentation of a natural fungus and is a low calorie alternative to diced meat. Packed with proteins and fibre, these guilt-free meatless chunks are surprisingly tender. Accompanied by tofu, of which its humble appearance doesn’t measure up to the health benefits it offers. High in protein and rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals, this beancurd is a versatile ingredient that readily absorbs any flavour.
Healthy and rich in flavours, the dish gets its distinct spicy kick from the Si Chuan pepper oil. Remember to give the sauce a quick taste test before adding in anything. Carefully push the ingredients and get all that mouthwatering hot sauce over those soft tofu cubes and crisp Quorn pieces. Easily recreate this meat free version of the iconic savoury, tongue tingling Ma Po Tofu in just under an hour!
