Baked Tofu with Pepper and Bok Choy


  • Place tofu on large plate. Cover with second plate and weigh down with 2 large, heavy cans. Let stand for 10 minutes; drain. Cut in half horizontally.
  • Meanwhile, in shallow baking dish large enough to hold tofu in a single layer, whisk together soy and hoisin sauces, garlic, sesame oil and hot sauce. Add tofu; turn to coat. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven, turning once, until golden, about 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, brush a large nonstick skillet with olive oil; heat over medium-high heat. Sauté mushrooms, green onion and ginger until golden, about 5 minutes. Cut bok choy in half lengthwise and add to skillet along with red peppers; heat. Cover and steam until bok choy is tendercrisp, about 4 minutes.
