Steamed Tofu and Minced Pork
Health Highlights


2 medium Carrots (peeled, finely chopped)
1 chestnut(s) Chestnuts, raw, peeled (peeled and finely chopped)
1 tsp Corn flour, whole grain
1/2 green onion (stem) Green onion (stalk, sliced thinly)
50 gm Pork, ground, lean (or chicken)
1/2 tsp Sesame oil
1 tsp Shaoxing wine
1 tbsp Soy sauce
1/2 tbsp Soy sauce, shoyu
150 gm Tofu, silken, firm
1 dash White pepper


Cut tofu in pieces. Arrange tofu pieces on a steaming plate (with a bit of depth).

Mix carrot, chestnut, wine, corn flower, green onion, pork, sesame oil, soy sauce and white pepper in a small bowl and allow to sit for at least a few minutes.

Mould a small amount of the marinated meat mixture (about 1 tsp or less) into a ball and place on top of tofu slices. Drizzle 1/2 tbsp light soy over the tofu slices.

Steam over high heat for about 5 minutes (starting from the time the water in steamer is boiling), or until the meat is cooked through. Before serving, use a spoon to drizzle the soy liquid collected in the plate over the tofu slices. Garnish with chopped spring onions.
