Glazed Tofu with Baby Bok Choy [Vegan]


For the baby bok choy:

  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 4 heads of baby bok choy, quartered
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • Steamed white rice, for serving

For the glazed tofu:

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tamari
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 14 ounces extra firm tofu, pressed for 30 minutes
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
  • Black & white sesame seeds, to garnish


For the baby bok choy:

  1. In a skillet over medium heat add the oil, garlic & ginger. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Add the bok choy & cook until the greens begin to wilt. Add the vegetable broth & cover with lid. Steam for 2 to 4 minutes, depending on desired wellness. Set aside while you prepare the tofu.

For the glazed tofu:

  1. In a small mixing bowl whisk together the vegetable broth, soy sauce, tamari, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, chili paste & sesame oil until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Add the tofu to a mixing bowl & toss with cornstarch. Ensure tofu is pressed for a minimum of 30 minutes to remove any excess moisture.
  3. In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the tofu & cook until crispy, about 2 minutes. Add the sauce & cook until coated.

To assemble:

Fill the bowl with steamed rice. Top with bok choy followed by glazed tofu. Garnish with sesame seeds & serve!
