This is a great one dish, pan-asian meal and makes for a healthy, well-balanced lunch or dinner. The combination of the spicy, rich tofu and the fresh cool greens really makes the dish pop. Adapted from Vegetarian Times.

Mmmm, this is so good. The store was out of extra-firm tofu though, so I had to use the firm kind... It kind of fell apart in the sauce and looked like a chunky tofu scramble, but it still tasted incredible. The only change I would maybe make next time is cutting down the amount of sesame oil in half, as it was a bit overpowering.
