Egg Tofu With Oyster Mushroom

Source: Wikipedia
Tofu or bean curd is a food of Chinese origin,[1] made by coagulating soy milk, and then pressing the resulting curds into blocks. There are many different varieties of tofu, including fresh tofu and tofu that has been processed in some way. Tofu has very little flavor or smell on its own, so it can be used either in savory or sweet dishes, and is often seasoned or marinated to suit the dish.Tofu is low in calories, contains a relatively large amount of iron and contains little fat.I happened to find these Egg Tofu in Asian Market one day and prepared this recipe which usually done by my dad when we were in Singapore very frequently. Well I can finish the whole plate myself just with plain steaming white rice and my son's favorite too. Anything made with bean curds is his favorite dish after eggs..
