The instruction how to make Seared chilli tofu with Asian greens

  1. Cut the tofu crossways into quarters. Pat dry both sides of tofu squares with paper towel. Combine the soy sauce, canola oil, garlic and chilli in a small bowl. Place the tofu in a shallow glass or ceramic dish and drizzle with soy sauce mixture. Turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1 hour to develop the flavours.
  2. Cut the stems from the leaves of the gai larn and choy sum. Place the stock and water in a large saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil. Add the gai larn and choy sum stems, cover, and return to the boil. Cook, covered, for 2 minutes or until bright green and tender crisp. Use a slotted spoon to transfer stems to a large bowl. Cover with foil to keep warm. Add the gai larn and choy sum leaves to the pan and cook, covered, for 1 minute or until wilted. Transfer to the bowl with the stems and toss to combine.
  3. Meanwhile, drain the tofu and discard the marinade. Heat the sesame oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and kecap manis and cook for 1-2 minutes each side or until tofu is golden brown. Remove from heat. Cut tofu squares in half diagonally.
  4. Divide Asian greens among plates. Top with tofu and serve immediately.
