  • Author: Mark Feldman

  • Yield: 4 1x


This baby bok choy, tofu stir fry is a weekly healthy go-to.


Units Scale


  1. 2 T oyster sauce
  2. 2 T. soy sauce
  3. 2 T. rice vinegar
  4. 1 T. chili oil
  5. 2 t. brown sugar
  6. 1 t. black pepper

Stir Fry:

  1. 1 package firm tofu cut into 1/2” squares
  2. 1 lb. baby bok choy (see “How to stir fry bok choy” below), chopped lengthwise
  3. 1/2 medium sweet onion, sliced thin
  4. 1/2 medium red pepper, cubed
  5. 1 8 oz. package white mushrooms, cut into 1/4 ” slices
  6. 3 cups cooked white rice
  7. 2 T. chopped peanuts plus more for garnish
  8. 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  9. 2 T vegetable oil


Prepare the sauce

Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together. Set aside.

Prepare the stir fry ingredients

Cut the tofu into 1/2″ squares; use a paper towel or cloth to blot dry the tofu.

Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan or wok. When the oil starts to glisten, add the tofu and sear until golden brown on all sides. Remove from the pan and set aside.

In the same pan, add onion and saute until soft but not brown, about 4 minutes. Add the other ingredients and saute until soft.

Add the sauce to the pan, stirring into the ingredients until well incorporated, about 1 minute. Add the tofu and peanuts and lightly stir, heat for another 3 minutes until the sauce is well distributed. 


Divide the rice among your dishes (two to four, depending on how hungry you are!) and top with the stir-fry. Top with crushed peanuts and a dollop of your favorite chili crunch condiment or sauce.
