Serves 4
  • 1 (14 oz) pkg extra-firm tofu, drained
  • 1/4 cup plum sauce
  • 3 Tbsp ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Shao Hsing rice wine
  • 2 tsp canola oil plus 1 Tbsp, divided
  • 3 green onions, trimmed and cut into 2" lengths
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 4 baby bok choy, quartered lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds

Fold a kitchen towel in half and place on a cutting board. Cut tofu in half horizontally and set on towel. Put another folded towel and a weight (such as a heavy skillet) on tofu; let drain for 15 minutes. Cut the tofu into 3/4″ cubes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together plum sauce, ketchup, soy sauce, and rice wine.

In a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat, add 2 teaspoons oil. Add green onions, garlic, and ginger, and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds. Add bok choy and cook until bright green, 1-2 minutes. Add water, cover and steam until tender, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe pan dry.

In a medium bowl, toss tofu in cornstarch until evenly coated. Return pan to medium-high heat, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and heat until shimmering. Add tofu in a single layer. Cook, without stirring, until starting to brown, 2-3 minutes. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until brown on all sides, 6-8 minutes more. Add sauce and cook until tofu is well coated, 1-2 minutes. Serve with bok choy, sprinkled with sesame seeds.
