    Oparu's Note:

    This is a very healthy and simple dish that can be made with just a frying pan/skillet with a cover. It really does not matter how much bok choy you use. Measurements should NOT be carefully observed because it really depends on preference. This dish can be served with noodles or rice, depending on what you like. If you're on a low-carb diet, this could serve 2 people. If this is going to be your main dish and you're not having any carbs, try adding some sliced mushrooms with the tofu. This will add some moisture to the pan for steaming too. For the bok choy, I like the baby bok choy because there's no chopping necessary. Larger ones need to be chopped into one-inch pieces. This recipe works with silken soft tofu too but it is more difficult to handle. Sesame oil is optional because it's not a common thing for people to have in their kitchens.

    1. 1
      Turn on the burner to low-medium heat.
    2. 2
      When it's hot, pour in the oil(s) and garlic.
    3. 3
      Add the sliced tofu to the pan and drizzle soy sauce over the tofu. The amount really depends on how salty you like your food. Start with 2 Tablespoons and add more later if it's too bland.
    4. 4
      Cover the pan immediately. If the soy sauce evaporates, add some water and cover the pan again. There should be enough water from the tofu to create steam.
    5. 5
      After a minute or two, flip the tofu slices and put all of the bok choy in the pan. Cover again.
    6. 6
      After about 3 minutes, use chopsticks (or a big spoon) to stir the bok choy so that it picks up some soy sauce.
    7. 7
      Cover pan and cook for a few more minutes.
    8. 8
      The dish is ready when the bok choy is wilted.
