    This came out pretty nice. Not a terribly original recipe but I like it, and it takes about 30 minutes to make.

    Serves:
    2-3 people, depending on how gluttonous they are.


    Ingredients:

    300g firm tofu, divided into flat squares
    1 flat tablespoon hoison sauce
    1/2 teaspoon chinese 5-spice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3-4 large silverbeet or spinach leaves including stems, chopped roughly
    1/2 a carrot, sliced
    A finger-tip of ginger, sliced
    1/2 onion, chopped
    4-5 tablespoons oil (preferably rice bran oil)


    Directions:

    Put the oil in a medium-sized frying pan and heat to a medium temperature. There should be about 1-2mm of oil across the pan.
    Put the tofu slices in and fry on one side till golden & crispy, same on other side. Remove from pan, leaving oil behind.
    Put in onion, carrot, turn up heat to medium-high, fry for a few minutes, add silverbeet/spinach and fry for a few more.
    Add hoisin, salt, ginger & 5-spice, stir around till everything's covered then fry till silverbeet/spinach is reduced somewhat and stalks are softer (5-10 minutes),
    stiring every so often.
    Add fried tofu, stir around so tofu is also covered in the sauce, then remove from heat, leave to cool for 5 minutes.
    Serve with rice.
