    JungleLove's Note:

    This is a really basic stir-fry that I found on nytimes.com "recipes for health". Simple flavors, few ingredients, healthy.... I like to serve this over quinoa but you could use rice or noodles with equal success. When browning the tofu, I add some extra chili paste and fresh ginger to the pan for flavor. After it's done and draining on paper towels, I sprinkle it with some kosher salt. The result is far from bland tofu! It's also good to keep some extra soy sauce and hot sauce on the table so that eaters can season to taste. Also, freezing tofu and then thawing it before you cut it up gives it a chewier firmer texture that I really enjoy.... Cheers to healthy eating!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat in a large, heavy nonstick skillet or wok, and stir-fry the tofu until lightly colored. Remove from the heat, and drain on paper towels. (See description for flavoring ideas).
    2. 2
      Add the remaining oil to the pan, then add the red pepper. Stir fry for three minutes, and add the garlic, ginger and the light part of the scallions. Stir-fry for about 15 seconds, then add the bok choy or baby broccoli.
    3. 3
      Stir-fry for about one minute, until coated with oil and beginning to wilt, and add the water. Cook, stirring, until the water evaporates, about two to three minutes, and stir in the tofu, the soy sauce and chili paste. (I had a hard time evaporating the water and ended up pouring it out of the pan before adding the soy, chili paste, and tofu.).
    4. 4
      Stir-fry for a couple of minutes, until the ingredients are well seasoned. Remove from the heat, sprinkle on the green part of the scallions (and maybe sesame seeds) and serve.

      This was good! I mixed bok choy and broccoli for extra greens and used stock instead of water. Thanks for posting another great healthy recipe.
