How to Make Spicy Vegan Lentil Mabo Tofu

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 7 steps you must follow to make Spicy Vegan Lentil Mabo Tofu in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Prep all the ingredients beforehand so you can work quickly while stir-frying (don't forget to soak your lentils for 6-8 hours!). Mince the garlic, green onion and fermented black beans. Grate the ginger and lightly grind the Sichuan peppercorns.
  • Step 2
  • In a large frying pan or wok, heat the sesame oil and fry the ginger, garlic and spring onion until fragrant. Add the fermented black beans and Sichuan peppercorns and fry for about 1 minute, stirring.
  • Step 3
  • Add the douban jiang/spicy chili bean paste and fry briefly while mixing it into the other ingredients.
  • Step 4
  • Add the soaked and drained lentils, then pour in enough water to just cover everything. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer on medium low for about 15 minutes until the lentils are soft.
  • Step 5
  • While the lentils are cooking, mix 1/2 cup stock with 2 tsp potato starch, 1 Tbsp soy sauce and 1 tsp sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Step 6
  • Once the lentils are soft, cut the tofu into bite-sized cubes and add it into the pan. Gently toss to mix but avoid stirring or the tofu may fall apart.
  • Step 7
  • Give the stock mix from step 5 a stir and pour it over the lentils and tofu. Bring to a boil and simmer for a couple minutes until the sauce has thickened a bit. Garnish with chopped scallions and serve.
