STIR-FRIED TOFU with BOK CHOI

2 small bunches bok choi, washed
1 carton soft or firm tofu, drained
1 C vegetable stock, chicken stock or water
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. oyster sauce (if vegetarian, omit or substitute Lan Chi Chilli Paste)
1 tbsp. roasted peanut oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. cornstarch mixed w/1tbsp. water

Cut bok choi leaves into 3-inch pieces, the stems into 2-inch pieces. Cut tofu (gently!) into 1"-ish cubes. Mix together stock, soy sauce and oyster sauce. Heat a wide nonstick skillet, add the oil and when hot, add garlic and bok choi. Sprinkle with salt and stir-fry over high heat for about 2 minutes, until greens are wilted. Add stock, reduce heat to low, add tofu. Cover and simmer until tofu is heated through, 4 to 5 minutes. Add diluted cornstarch and gently stir into the juices without breaking tofu. Serve over rice.
