Updated – as requested, I have included a picture of the hot bean paste jar that I used.
Here is a SUPER simple dish that only takes about 5 minutes, only requires about 3-4 ingredients, and tastes surprisingly good (for something that has is missing meat!)
Heat ~1 tablespoon of canola oil in the bottom of a large wok (medium high heat). Add minced garlic (I put about 3 cloves worth) and chopped scallion bulbs (maybe 2 bulbs?) and cook until fragrant but before it starts to burn (~ 1 minute or so).
Add one package worth of diced silken soft tofu (you can use firm too – it’s really personal preference). Stir it around to heat it up.
Add about 1-2 tablespoons of hot bean sauce to taste (la doban jiang).
Stir around until sauce is well mixed throughout.
Top with chopped scallions (green part).
