Crisp Tofu with Asian Greens and Peanut Sauce

Crisp Tofu with Asian Greens and Peanut Sauce

Recipe from Mark Bittman’s Kitchen Express.

Ingredients

  • tatsoi
  • firm tofu
  • vegetable oil
  • red chile flakes
  • peanut butter
  • soy sauce
  • peanuts

Instructions

  1. Slice firm tofu into strips or cubes and pat dry; roughly chop a bunch of the greens. Pan-fry the tofu in some vegetable oil until it browns on all sides, about four minutes; remove tofu from pan and pour off all but a little of the oil. Add the greens and pinch or two of red chile flakes, and continue cooking until the vegetables turn dark green, about three minutes. Mix together a half cup of peanut butter, a couple of tablespoons of soy sauce, and fresh lime juice to taste; add a bit of water if necessary to get a nice consistency. Add the sauce to the pan along with the reserved tofu and toss to coat. (You may not need to use all of the sauce, depending on how much greens/tofu you have). Garnish with crushed peanuts and serve.

Tatsoi with Oyster Sauce

Tatsoi with Oyster Sauce

via PBS Food from the Fresh Tastes blog

Ingredients

  • 7 ounces (200 grams) Tatsoi
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • .25 ounces (7 grams, 1 large clove) garlic, sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Separate the individual leaves and discard any tough parts of the core, slicing up the rest of the stem. Wash thoroughly and run through a salad spinner to dry.
  2. Add the sesame oil and sliced garlic to a frying pan and fry over medium-high heat until fragrant (but not browned).
  3. Add the tatsoi and stir-fry until the leaves are wilted. It will help reduce the volume of leaves if you use a spatula to press down on them until they wilt.
  4. Add the oyster sauce and stir fry until the stems have cooked through and there is no liquid left in the pan.
  5. Serve immediately, sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds.
