    Divaconviva's Note:

    This is a simple and quick stir-fry. Peanut oil and shitake mushrooms provide the main flavor in this dish. These amounts are approximate. I added a generous sprinkling of finely ground cayenne at the very end for some serious heat, but those who don't like it hot-hot can skip that. Enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 396.89 g firm tofu, Cut into one-inch cubes
    • 29.58-44.37 ml peanut oil (I use unrefined peanut oil, yum!)
    • 1 large garlic clove, Grated
    • 1 sweet onion, such as Oso Sweet, Empire Sweet
    • 4-5 bunch baby bok choy, about 1 pound, Cut into 1/2-inch pieces, leaves chopped coarsely
    • 10-12 fresh shiitake mushrooms, stems trimmed even with cap, each cut into quarters, sixths if larger mushroom
    • 118.29 ml carrot, Julienned (I cut baby carrots lengthwise)
    • 29.58-44.37 ml dark soy sauce
    • 9.85-14.78 ml sugar, to taste
    • 1.23 ml cayenne pepper (Use your own discretion!)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In large non-stick skillet, heat peanut oil over medium-high heat.
    2. 2
      Cut onion in half and place onion cut-side down on cutting board. Slice 1/2-inch thick slices across the short way. Then cut once across the slices, creating two rows.
    3. 3
      Put onions into skillet with the grated garlic and saute for approximately 3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add cubed tofu into pan and saute over high heat, adding oil as needed. Turn a few times with spatula until cubes brown slightly.
    5. 5
      Remove the tofu and onions onto a plate.
    6. 6
      Add bok choy and mushrooms to pan, stirring in 2 teaspoons of sugar, adding a little peanut oil if needed, and saute vegetables for 2 to 3 minutes. Push vegetables to the sides of the pan and add tofu into the center, sprinkling 2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce over cubes. Sprinkle carrots around pan on top of vegetables. Heat for 2 minutes, sprinkle cayenne pepper over all, then gently stir everything together for 1 - 2 minutes more, using a flat nylon or bamboo spatula so as not to crush the tofu.
    7. 7
      Serve with steamed rice.

      Tasty, healthy and filling. I used extra firm tofu, a bit extra garlic and a mixture of peanut oil and sesame oil. Once everything was stri-frying, it was done very quickly. I love baby bok choy, so next time I think I will add more. Thanx for sharing!

      This was really great. I added a bit more soy sauce and used powdered sugar which thickened the sauce a teeny bit. Oh and I had my groceries delivered so they confused a portabella with a shiitake, but it was still really yummy.
