Fried Tofu with Stir fry Shimeji mushroom

As I said that I start cooking again, ^^, and I have so much fun with it, hehe. Cooking is different from baking in many ways but the result is the same because all we need is "something delicious" .
Tofu is one of my favorite ingredients (well, I love food with soft texture ^^). There are many methods for turning it into something appetizing. This time, I fry it and covering it with stir fry Shimeji mushrooms.
By heating tofu in the microwave and covering with the paper towel, the tofu will be drier, and stay in piece when frying. Actually you can eat this dish as a main dish or serve it with a bowl of cooked rice, it's delicious both way, but you may need to skip the salt in the seasoning if serve it without rice as it can be too salty ^^.
For me, I love to eat it with rice, as soft and warm cooked rice with something tasty is always comforting, I think it's the meaning of home cooking.
