Tofu and Vegetables in Claypot

I bought a new design claypot from Chinatown in NYC when I shop there months ago.Actually I was just looking for the plain design claypot but the salesman told me the old fashion plain claypot break easily.He recommend this new stylish design claypot ,said it can handle direct hot heat and abuse!!.Of course the different between both claypot beside the quality is the price.My intention to get this claypot is to cook claypot rice but still didn't have the chance yet!.I remember early this year when I was in Hong Kong during Chinese New Year,I ordered an order of chicken claypot rice in the wee hour with Mishu at one of Mongkok's restaurant.I was fascinated by the way the vendor cooked their claypot rice.Let's me get back to this topic before I carry away ....I'm going to make my own chicken claypot rice soon!.But for now let's me show you my tofu with vegetables in claypot.


1 bunch Chinese chives(cut 2 inch long)

1 head broccoli(cut small)

1 carrot(peel and sliced)

1 bell pepper(cut )

1 large onion(cut)

1 box soft tofu(cut 6 pc)

5-6 garlic(minced)

2 tbsp oyster sauce

2 inch ginger (sliced)

2 tsp chicken bullion powder

1 tsp salt

2 tbsp corn flour for tofu coating

3 tbsp oil

1 tbsp sesame oil


1:Wash and cut all the vegetables,set aside.Prepared skillet with oil at high heat to pan-fried tofu coated with corn flour.Fried tofu both side until golden brown,set aside.

2:Use the same skillet ,add in minced garlic and ginger,fry until golden brown,then add in all the vegetables ,oyster sauce,chicken bullion powder and and salt.Stir fry for 2-3 minutes,then pour the vegetables into the claypot.

3:Prepare claypot at medium heat,add in tofu ,let it simmer for 5 minutes before drizzling with sesame oil.Serve warm with rice or noodles . Note:

This dish is suitable for those who are on carb diet or vegetarian.If you're a straight vegetarian,you have to omit garlic ,chicken bullion powder and oyster sauce.I love this new design of claypot,it's easy to wash,bigger space and look presentable.

This looks delicious. I found you on food gawker. On the food gawker website they say this dish is vegetarian. They oyster sauce and chicken bullion are not vegetarian ingredients. I realize you didn't claim this was vegetarian. I just thought I'd point this out for anyone clicking through who might want to make this for a vegetarian friend.

Vegetarians should omit the garlic? What kind of animal is garlic? ;)

From what I understand Buddishism don't take garlic.Why?.Some Chinese Buddhists refrain from consuming onions or garlic, because they are thought to increase sexual desire and anger. WEll,you can google and see what they said.

This dish looks delicious! I would love to try it but don't have a clay pot and I'm not sure where I would get one. I live in Atlanta, GA, not really close to NYC. Can this be made just in a skillet or a casserole dish instead of a clay pot? Or can you recommend any websites where I can order one? Thanks!
