Stir Fry Liap-Liap (ToFu, French Beans, Carrots, Onions and Mushrooms)

I have bookmarked this recipe for a while now, and when I saw the Soya Beans theme “Little Thumbs Up” event hosted by Mich, it just means a good time for me to try out this dish before October ends. I remember eating this dish in Malaysia Economy Mixed Rice stalls; it is a very appetizing dish. Because there are multiple ingredients used in this dish and all cut into little cute cubes shape, you get to taste all of it in one spoonful. In a Chinese cooking household, sometimes I find it hard to cook an extra dish alongside with the main protein (i.e. meat or seafood) when serve with rice. This stir fry is ideal in a situation of such – when you want something different than the usual green vegetables.

Recipe adapted from: Peng’s Kitchen


  • 400gm firm tofu, diced
  • 250gm french beans, diced
  • 100gm fresh shitake mushroom, diced
