To prepare the tofu, drain it, pat it dry with paper towels, and cut it into ½-inch thick and inch-long pieces.
Heat one tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat in a large non-stick skillet or wok, and stir-fry the tofu until lightly colored. Remove the skillet or wok from the heat, and let the tofu drain on paper towels.
Add the remaining oil to the pan along with the green pepper and stir-fry for three minutes.
Add the garlic, ginger, and the light part of the scallions and stir-fry for approximately 15 seconds.
Add the bok choy and stir-fry for about one minute, just until it is coated with oil and begins to wilt. Then add water.
Cook while stirring for approximately two to three minutes, or until the water evaporates.
Stir in the tofu, soy sauce, and chili paste for a couple of minutes, just until the ingredients are well seasoned. Remove the skillet or wok from heat.
Top with Sriracha, to taste.
Ready to serve!
Did you know?
Tofu originates in China and is made by curdling fresh soy milk and pressing it into a solid white block. It was rumored to have been discovered by a Chinese cook who accidentally combined curdled soy milk and nigiri seaweed together. Moreover, tofu has several health benefits, as it is believed to help lower levels of cholesterol and thus the risk of heart disease.
