  • ½ cup refined coconut cooking oil
  • 1 block extra-firm tofu pressed, drained, and cut into small cubes
  • 2 tablespoons shallots
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 cup mushrooms diced into small pieces (I used a variety with shitake and oyster mushrooms)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1-2 pieces red or green chili peppers chopped (depending on how spicy you want it)
  • ½ cup white onion chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon green onions


  • Heat a pan over medium heat and add and oil for 5-8 minutes. The oil needs to be hot enough to fry the tofu.
  • Slowly add the tofu and fry until all sides are golden brown, set aside.
  • In the same pan, lower the heat to low and sauté shallots and garlic until fragrant or when the shallots turn translucent.
  • Add mushrooms, soy sauce, and allow it to cook for about 5 minutes or until the mushrooms become tender.
  • Add the fried tofu, chili pepper and sauté for a minute and feel free to add additional chili pepper for more spice.
  • Add white onions, salt, pepper, then add mayonnaise and sauté for 2 minutes.
  • Add brown sugar and mix until combined.
  • Garnish with lime juice, green onions, and serve with steamed rice.
