Tasty Tuesday: Silken Tofu in Clay Pot with Enoki Mushroom

So I LOOOOOVE steamed silken tofu. It’s just divine. I bought a clay pot 6 months ago to cook yummy thing in. I’ve noticed that cooking on low heat in a clay pot really enhances the flavour, because it allowing the food to simmer and steam slowly without overlooking cooking in a beautifully insulated clay pot. Ahhhh, so delicious. My mouth is already watering writing this….

So here is what I use to make my simple claypot! 

Silken Tofu in Claypot with Enoki Mushrooms

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 7 minutes
Serves: 2 people


  • Clay pot (19cm or bigger)
  • 1 pack of enoki mushrooms
  • 1 small pack of silken tofu
  • 1/2 capful (2 teaspoons) shaoxing 
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 4 drops of fish sauce (potent)
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seed oil
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic/ginger paste
  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • Seasoning salt
  • Optional: 1 thinly sliced green chilli


  1. Place clean claypot on stove and warm up on a medium heat.
  2. Add one tablespoon of vegetable oil and add a teaspoon or sesame seed oil. 
  3. When heated, add sliced shallot and cook until soft (1 minute).
  4. Use mortar and pestle to crush garlic and ginger. 
  5. Add crushed garlic and ginger to claypot and stir for 20-30 seconds to flavour the oil. Do not let it burn. 
  6. If adding chillies, add now. 
  7. Add soy sauce, shaoxing, fish sauce and stir. Let simmer for a minute then lower the heat to the lowest level possible. You want to steam, not boil the tofu. 
  8. Carefully add whole block of silken tofu, sprinkle a little salt, and cover. Allow to simmer for 5- 6 minutes.
  9. Add enoki mushrooms (tips cut off and washed) on top of the tofu and simmer. Add only in the last 1-3 minutes before serving. As this mushroom cooks very fast, you must be mindful not to overcook it.
  10. Serve with rice and other side dishes. 

Make sure to pour the sauce on the dish afterward! I avoid doing this beforehand so that I won’t break the delicate silken tofu. 

    I hope you enjoyed this easy and simple recipe. See you next Tuesday!
