Tofu and Bok Choy Stir Fry - Healthy recipe

Tofu and Bok Choy Stir Fry - Healthy recipe

Howdy folks?! This healthy version of Tofu and Bok Choy stir fry is simply easy to prepare yet very nutritious. It makes a great breakfast or a quick meal. 

You may use add ons like oyster sauce or soy sauce, but to keep it on the healthier side, I did not add any. Yes, the sauces does make it even delicious, but this recipe is for those who want to eat clean and fresh. 

Tofu - aka Bean curd is a natural source of protein, in addition to other nutrients. The tofu usually comes packaged in some water. Rinse it off and dab off the excess water using a kitchen towel and cut them into cubes and fry them in olive oil. For adding flavor to the dish I used mushrooms too, which by default brings in an umami flavor.

I have added red kidney beans and bok choy are good sources of iron, potassium and Vitamin C respectively. Since this recipe is almost raw, without any additives, you will feel really good once you have it. 

Let’s see how to prepare the stir fry!


  • 3-4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 250 gms Tofu, small cubes
  • 2 small Garlic, cloves
  • A handful of Bok Choy, washed and chopped 
  • 100 gms Mushroom, sliced
  • Salt, as required 
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, crushed
  • 1 tsp White Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Red Kidney Beans, boiled


  1. In a hot pan, pour olive oil and add minced garlic, almost immediately add in the tofu cubes. Season with salt.
  2. Once all sides are cooked and has a crust like feel, transfer to a plate and set aside.
  3. Now in the same pan, pour olive oil and add in minced garlic and add in the sliced mushroom, salt and black pepper.
  4. When the mushroom almost looks cooked, make a well in the middle, pour olive oil and add in the chopped bok choy, season with salt.
  5. Deglaze the pan with a couple of tbsp of water so that it helps to cook the bok choy easily.
  6. Add a dash of white vinegar to balance the flavor and add the cooked red kidney beans. Sauté and to cook for a couple of minutes.
  7. Finally add in your fried tofu and serve immediately and enjoy the stir fry hot! 


To cook the red kidney beans, in a cooker add washed beans, to that, add an inch more of water and pressure cook for 1 whistle. Allow the pressure to cook the beans for around 5 minutes, after which, place the cooker under cool running water and slowly pull up the whistle (this will help release the pressure).
Drain over a colander. Once drained, transfer to an air tight container and add in a dash of olive oil place lid and shake to cover the beans with the oil, and store the cooked red kidney beans for up to 5 days in the refrigerator and use as and when required.
