Spiced Bok Choy and Tofu Recipe

I saw this recipe yesterday and was craving something fresh and clean and thought this would hit the spot. It definitely did! With all the stress of school and work creeping up on me I needed something that was easy as well so I went to my favorite website, Vegetarian Times and found this amazing and simple recipe. I don't think anything is better than bok choy when you are in the mood for a fresh taste. With the seasons still changing I used frozen vegetables and they worked just as well! I love frozen veggies because they don't take the time to prepare that fresh ones do and they taste just as good if not better because they are always picked when they are at their prime. If I have time in my busy schedule to make this dinner you should be able to take 30 minutes and please your most difficult food critic.


Ingredients:
Serves 4
1 Tbs. peanut or vegetable oil
1 Tbs. dark sesame oil
9 cups (1 medium bunch) bok choy, rinsed and sliced crosswise
4 cups sliced shiitake mushroom caps
1 cup sliced scallion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeño, minced
1 Tbs. grated fresh ginger
3 Tbs. water
3 Tbs. low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp. granular sugar substitute
1 lb. firm tofu, at room temperature, cubed

Directions:
  • Heat oils in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add bok choy and mushrooms, and stir-fry for 5 minutes, or until tender-crisp. Add scallion, garlic, jalapeño and ginger, and stir-fry for 1 1/2 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mix water, soy sauce and sugar substitute together in a cup. Stir into bok choy mixture, and top with tofu. Cover, and cook just to heat through, for 1 minute.
