Prep time

4 min.

Cook time

45 min.

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Sriracha (or to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 14 oz extra-firm tofu, pressed and cut into 8 slices
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 bunch bok choy, roughly chopped
  • 4 cups brown rice
  • 1/4 cup crushed peanuts
  • 1/4 cup scallions

Preheat oven to 400°.

In a bowl, whisk soy sauce, rice vinegar, Sriracha, brown sugar, peanut butter, and salt until combined.

Brush both sides of tofu slices with peanut sauce. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake for 35 minutes, flipping over halfway through.

In a large sauté pan, heat sesame oil over medium heat. Add garlic and bok choy, and toss to coat. Add remaining sauce and sauté for 5-8 minutes, or until greens are wilted and crisp-tender.

Divide rice between four bowls. Top with bok choy, tofu, crushed peanuts, and scallions.
