  1. Tofu:
    Squeeze the tofu using a cloth or a tiny towel. Otherwise, when cooked, the shumai balls would become mushy and disintegrate. Alternatively, you may purchase firm tofu such as CJ Food's Bibigo tofu (yellow box).
  2. Shumai:
    Prepare a large mixing bowl and combine the tofu, oyster mushrooms, and wood ear mushrooms. Add 1 tablespoon vegan seasoning powder (or 1/3 teaspoon salt in place of 1 tablespoon), 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 10 grams of cornstarch. Mix thoroughly with your hands to create a sticky mixture, then roll into bite-size balls. Following that, fry the vegan meatballs in heated oil, adding a few oyster mushrooms if desired.
  3. Sauce:
    Add 2 chopped tomatoes and 1 cup filtered water in a blender till smooth. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large saucepan and sauté the garlic (or leave it out entirely), then add the tomato puree and cherry tomatoes sliced in half. Stir in 2 teaspoons sugar, 2 tablespoons chili sauce, 2 tablespoons ketchup, 1/3 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons soy sauce to the sauce. Add the vegan shumai and fried oyster mushrooms once the ketchup begins to thicken. Finally, season the sauce with additional spices such as ground pepper, chili, green onion, or coriander.
  4. Finhish
    Serve the vegan meatballs on a platter while they are still hot, with bread, rice, or anything you like.
