Glazed Tofu With Bok Choy

Glazed Tofu With Bok Choy

Simmer the tofu in a mixture of minced garlic, ginger, fish and soy sauces, brown sugar, and sesame oil for a powerful punch of Asian flavor.

Serves 4
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 2 heads bok choy, cleaned and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 6 cups)
  • 3 garlic cloves (1 thinly sliced, 2 minced)
  • 1 14-ounce can vegetable broth
  • 1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 tsp fish sauce or tamari
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 4 tsp dark brown sugar
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 14-ounce package firm tofu, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch

Instructions

  1. Heat half the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bok choy and sliced garlic. Cook, stirring, until wilted, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add 1 ½ cups broth and simmer until reduced by half. Meanwhile, combine the minced garlic, ginger, fish and soy sauces, brown sugar, and sesame oil.
  3. Heat the remaining canola oil in another skillet over high heat. Add the tofu and brown, about 3 minutes per side.
  4. Add the soy mixture and coat the tofu with it. Simmer, uncovered, until the sauce is syrupy, about 4 minutes.
  5. Stir the cornstarch into the reserved broth and add to the bok choy. Stir gently until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  6. Divide the bok choy among 4 plates. Layer the glazed tofu on top.
