Bok Choi Tofu Stir Fry

This was absolutely wonderful!  We hadn't tried tofu with the kids for awhile.  Last time it didn't go so well, but this was a terrific surprise that everyone loved.

Bok Choi Tofu Stir Fry
image from
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp ginger root, grated
4 cups bok choi, coarsely chopped
1 cup shiitake mushroom, caps only, sliced
350g low-fat extra-firm tofu, drained and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp hoisin sauce**
1/4 cup scallions, chopped (I used leeks)
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 cup cooked brown rice

Coat a nonstick wok or skillet with cooking spray. Add garlic, ginger, bok choy and mushrooms; stir-fry over medium-high heat until bok choy is wilted, about 3 minutes.
Add tofu cubes and brown for 1 minute. Stir in soy sauce, hoisin sauce, scallions and pepper; heat through, about 1 minute. Spoon 1/2 cup of rice onto each of 4 plates and top each with about 1 cup of tofu mixture. * From - I believe originally from Weight Watchers

** We didn't make hoisin sauce, but substitute with 1 Tbsp peanut butter and 1 Tbsp honey.  Perhaps not as full in flavor, but it worked and still tasted great.

  2. You're welcome! We really did enjoy this dish - even my mom who never tries anything new! Of course, I didn't tell her it was tofu until she said she liked it :)
