  • 1 16 oz block firm tofu
  • 1 ½ tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup*
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • chopped green onion / scallions, for garnish
  • 2-3 dried black fungus


  • If using black fungus, soak them in hot water for 20 minutes to rehydrate them. Slice them thinly and set aside.
  • In a bowl, mix together both of the soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder and sesame oil.
  • Crumble your tofu using a fork or your hands into tiny pieces.
  • Heat up some oil in a non-stick pan / skillet. Start by sauteing the black fungus for 3-4 minutes. Then, add in the tofu and cook for another 3-4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
  • Pour in the sauce made earlier and toss until the sauce is well incorporated.
  • Garnish it with some chopped scallions and serve.


Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 days. 
To make it oil-free, omit the sesame oil and use water to saute your tofu.
Substitute the soy sauce with tamari and use gluten-free dark soy sauce / omit it completely to make this dish gluten-free. 
You can make this low carb by omitting the maple syrup.
