Turkey and Mushroom Mapo Tofu

In This Article

Mapo tofu is a traditional Sichuan dish with tofu, ground pork or beef and a spicy, vibrant red, oily sauce. This version is far from traditional, but it’s equally satisfying. We’ve kept the backbones of the dish with the deeply savory chili sauce and the tingling heat of Sichuan peppercorns, but lightened it up using less oil and a mixture of ground turkey and finely chopped mushrooms in place of pork and beef. We’ve also flipped the proportions — this take is meat-heavy, adding more lean protein to your meal. For a nice, balanced dish, serve with brown rice to include a small serving of grains.
