Grilled Bok Choy with Spicy-Sweet Tofu

Sweet Thai chili sauce transforms tofu into a deliciously healthy, 30-min. meal everyone will love. Grilling bok choy brings out this Asian green’s natural sweetness.


  • ¼ cup Thai chili sauce
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 6 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 heads bok choy
  • 1 (14 oz) pkg extra-firm tofu drained
  • 2 tbsp lower sodium soy sauce


  1. In a small bowl, combine the chili sauce, crushed red pepper and 2 tablespoons of the canola oil.
  2. Cut the bok choy lengthwise into quarters and set aside. Cut the drained tofu into ¼ -inch-thick slices and brush with 2 tbsp of the canola oil. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat and grill the tofu until crisp, 2 min. per side. Arrange the tofu on a serving platter and drizzle with all the soy sauce and half of the chili sauce mixture.
  3. Brush the cut sides of the bok choy with the remaining 2 tbsp oil and grill the bok choy in batches, turning regularly until tender, about 4 min. Drizzle the remaining chili sauce over the bok choy and serve with the tofu.
