My adaptation of a Weight Watchers recipe. The 30 minutes preparation time represents the time needed to press the tofu before cook, as the actual effort involved is minimal. Generous portions and big flavors for just 6 points.
- 14 ounces firm tofu
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon dry sherry
- 2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce
- 2 teaspoons ginger, grated
- 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
- 2 1⁄2 cups bok choy, sliced
- 3 garlic cloves, thin sliced
- 1 medium sweet red pepper, cut into thin strips
- 6 -8 medium white mushrooms, sliced
- If your cube is 2 inches high slice in half horizontally to create 2 1-inch thick pieces. Wrap the tofu block(s) in several layers of heavy-duty paper towels or a clean dish cloth. Place a heavy pan or object on top and leave it there for 30 minutes to squeeze out the moisture from the tofu brick. before pressing. Remove the tofu from the wrap and cut into 1-inch cubes.
- Mix together the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sherry, chili sauce and ginger together and toss with the tofu cubes to coat.
- Heat the sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bok choy, mushrooms and bell pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Add the garlic slices and cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Reduce heat to low; add tofu mixture. Cook 2 minutes or until tofu is thoroughly heated and vegetables are glazed.
- Serve with brown or white rice.
This made a nice light dinner for me last night. I enjoyed the greens, bell pepper(I didn't have red so used green) and mushrooms with the spicy tofu! I did add a little spicy brown sauce to kick it up just a little. Thanks Toni! Made for photo tag.
