Shitake Mushroom Pea Shoot Stir Fry with Cold Tofu

This was an easy dish that I just whipped together with what I had in my fridge.  Lately, I’ve been really into eating cold tofu and dipping it in a sauce.  For the sauce, I just mixed sesame oil, salt and pepper together.  I got this sauce idea from a Korean dish I would get when I ate meat.  It was served with bacon and you dipped the bacon in the sesame oil sauce.

Crispy Oyster Mushrooms

I LOVE oyster mushrooms!  I made these crispy oyster mushrooms yesterday as part of a side dish.  I dipped them in Jufran banana sauce and I was good to go. This recipe is fairly simple.  All I did was coat the oyster mushroom in seasoned cornstarch and pan fried them in canola oil on medium low heat until they were golden brown.
