Mo qua (fuzzy melon) with tofu
What to do with it? In the end I opted for a mo qua + tofu + egg type dish. Holy god, this is what food is meant to be. So very simple, but so awesome. Here's what I did:
First, mix up half a batch of the omelet from Vegan Brunch. This is my all-purpose go-to egg recipe. Next, chop your mo qua in half, then very finely slice:
Sprinkle with salt and set aside for 10 minutes to drain. Then rinse and pat dry.
Now heat some canola oil and a little sesame oil in a nonstick skillet, and, when hot, add the mo qua, and stir fry until the mo qua is just tender.
