Stir Fried Bok Choy and Tofu

I think I don’t need an explanation on what this dish is as it is one of the most common Asian vegetable dish, it is also my go to vegetable side dish if I am lazy and out of ideas. It’s quite simple to make and you don’t need a MasterChef to prepare this, with today’s easy access to already deep fried tofu all you need is your greens and some seasonings to cook this. As the name suggest, Stir Fried Bok Choy and Tofu is a dish made with those two ingredients stir fried together with a sauce flavoured with oyster sauce and soy sauce.

    Ubiquitous for good reason!

  2. Terrific and easy. I made this as written, just added sliced onion and used sliced portabella mushrooms in place of shiitakes. The sauce was perfect; not too runny and not too thick. I loved this with the tofu, but if you have meat-lovers, you could easily used chicken or pork or fish instead. Happy Chinese New Year! Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve become a huge bok choy fan and my local market always has organic baby bok choy. This is going to make a wonderful meatless dish for us this week. thanks Raymund!
