Tofu and mushroom miso

Ingredients (serves 4)
* 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
* 1 teaspoon sesame oil
* 100g Swiss brown mushrooms, thinly sliced
* 2 tablespoons brown miso
* 4 cups boiling water
* 1/2 bunch choy sum leaves, washed, shredded
* 150g drained silken firm tofu, cut into small cubes
* 1 tablespoon mirin

1. Place vegetable oil and sesame oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Combine miso and water in a heatproof jug. Add to saucepan and bring to the boil.
2. Reduce heat to medium. Add choy sum and tofu. Stir until choy sum wilts and tofu is heated through. Stir in mirin. Serve.

Notes & tips
* Note 1: Miso is a Japanese fermented soya bean paste with the consistency of peanut butter. You'll find it in the health food section of your supermarket.
* Note 2: Mirin is a sweet Japanese wine you'll find in the Asian section of supermarkets. Sweet sherry is a suitable substitute.
