Black Bean Marinated Tofu Cakes With Steamed Bok Choy

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by kelly in TO

Tofu, black bean sauce, bok choy! A Rose Reisman recipe... This marinade is so good. For a heartier meal cook some whole wheat pasta or soba noodles and double the marinade to add to the finished dish.

Delish! Hubby especially liked the sauce. I subbed hot chili paste for the sweet, and we thought that it was perfect that way. I also served it with brown rice. It was easy to make and fast as well, making this perfect for a weeknight meal. Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the sauce, whisk the honey, chili sauce, black bean sauce, oil, garlic and ginger in a 9 inch baking dish until combined. Add the tofu and marinate for at least 10 minutes, or longer for more flavor. Remove the tofu and scape marinade off. Reserve the marinade!
  2. Spray a non stick skillet with cooking oil and brown the tofu on both sides, approximately 3 minutes per side. Brush some sauce over the tofu, turn again and brush once more, cooking for 1 more minute. Set aside.
  3. Warm the remaining sauce in a small skillet over low heat.
  4. Steam the bok choy just until bright green, about 2 minutes. Do not overcook!
  5. Place the bok choy on serving plates.
  6. Top the bok choy with the tofu and drizzle with the sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped cilantro.
