Griddled Sesame and Garlic Tofu with Wilted Bok Choy

Serves 4
Time 2 hr 15 min
The flavors of ginger, garlic, and golden brown sesame seeds are locked inside tender tofu steaks that are seared over high heat until crispy. If you prefer a stronger miso flavor, use a dark brown or red miso. If you find yourself without apple or pineapple juice, use water instead.

Method

For the tofu, combine juice, tamari, miso, sugar, vinegar, sesame seeds, ginger, oil, chile flakes and garlic in a food processor and process until smooth to make a marinade.

Transfer marinade to a wide, shallow dish, add tofu and turn to coat well.

Cover dish and refrigerate for 2 hours, or preferably overnight.

Spray a large nonstick skillet with vegetable oil and heat over high heat.

Drain tofu and reserve the marinade.

Transfer tofu to skillet and cook, flipping once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.

For the bok choy, heat peanut and sesame oils in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Add ginger, garlic, and bok choy and cook, stirring frequently, until almost tender, 4 to 5 minutes.

Add the tamari and green onions and remove from heat.

To assemble, place a bed of bok choy on each of 4 plates.

Arrange tofu steaks over the bok choy, and drizzle with some of the reserved marinade. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
