Cost: $11.04 per recipe / $2.76 per serving


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil ($0.06)
  • 1 block extra-firm tofu drained and pressed ($3.36)
  • 5 ounces shiitake mushrooms chopped ($1.45)
  • 4 cloves garlic minced ($0.24)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger minced or grated ($0.22)
  • 4 stalks green onion chopped, whites and greens separated ($0.22)
  • ½ teaspoon salt ($0.02)
  • 8 cups cabbage thinly sliced ($3.48)
  • 3 medium carrots grated ($0.24)


  • ¼ cup soy sauce ($0.69)
  • 3 tablespoon hoisin sauce ($0.60)
  • 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce or sriracha ($0.15)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar ($0.12)


  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil ($0.19)
  • Chopped cilantro


  • In a small bowl, mix together the sauce ingredients. Set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large wok over medium heat. Crumble in the tofu with your hands. Add the mushrooms and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes. The mixture should be dry and beginning to brown.
  • Add the garlic, ginger, whites of the green onions, salt, and half the sauce. Stir together and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the cabbage and carrot and mix everything together. Sauté for another 5 minutes or until the cabbage is slightly wilted. Add the rest of the sauce and cook for another 2 minutes or until the mixture is combined and any liquid has reduced.
  • Remove from the heat and top with the remaining green onions, sesame oil, and chopped cilantro. Serve over rice and enjoy!

Meal Prep Instructions

  • Prep the sauce in advance and store in an airtight glass jar in the fridge.
  • Chop the vegetables in advance and store in separated airtight containers.


  • This recipe isn't the most freezer friendly – freezing cabbage will change the texture. 
  • Tofu substitution: The tofu and mushroom mixture can be replaced with 1 lb of vegan or regular beef.
