Mapo tofu! This came out exactly as I wanted. I'm currently in a spice high right now.
I started with this recipe (for which there's also a nice YouTube video): https://www.reddit.com/r/Cooking/comments/6a41g8/recipe_authentic_sichuan_mapo_tofu_%E9%BA%BB%E5%A9%86%E8%B1%86%E8%85%90/?st=jyvn2qtx&sh=17a08177
I made the recipe vegan by replacing the meat with a couple mushrooms fried in an excess of oil and the chicken stock with veggie stock (from powder cuz I am lazy). Turned out great!
