This was something I made one Sunday evening to use the leftover produce from the weekend. My husband liked it so much, I make it all the time now. Leftover French or Italian bread works great with the mushroom juices. This can be reduced to serve less people. Also it's great to add in whatever kinds of extra veggies you have in the house.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a deep frying pan over high heat, saute butter, tofu, onion and Chinese five- spice seasoning until onions begin to appear translucent.

  • Stir mushrooms into the frying pan, and reduce heat to medium-high. Let cook for 15 minutes; you will notice the mushrooms releasing their juices. Stir constantly, so that nothing gets burned onto the bottom of the pan.

  • Place torn bread in the bottom of each serving dish. Sprinkle shredded cheese over top of the bread. With a ladle, scoop out mushroom-mixture (including the mushroom broth) and ladle it over the bread and cheese. Serve immediately.

Didn't like this. It was edible but I won't make it again. Chinese five spice with cheese and bread didn't seem right but since it got good reviews I tried it anyway. Oh well. Read More

It s been my belief that a recipe is only as good as its versatility. This is a fantastic base recipe and as one reviewer said you can t go wrong with this one. I reduce the oil by about and use EEVO instead of butter. I like mine best with bits of broccoli and red peppers added. I can t imagine too many left over veggies you couldn t easily add to this dish. Great idea! Read More
