Stir-Fried Turnip Greens and Tofu


    Stir-Fried Turnip Greens and Tofu

    Young turnip greens are tender and pleasingly sharp, while older ones are more piquant in flavour. This full-flavoured almond ginger sauce with its high oil content helps us absorb the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) found in dark greens.


    1/4 cup (60 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
    3 Tbsp (45 mL) rice vinegar
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) low-sodium soy sauce
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) almond butter
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) honey
    2 tsp (10 mL) dark sesame oil
    2 tsp (10 mL) Dijon mustard
    1 tsp (5 ml) minced ginger
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 tsp (5 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
    1 - 14 oz (400 g) package pressed tofu, cut into cubes
    2 small bunches turnip greens or 1 bunch each turnip greens and spinach

    To make sauce, whirl 1/4 cup (60 mL) oil with rice vinegar, soy sauce, almond butter, honey, sesame oil, Dijon mustard, ginger, and garlic in blender. Sauce will be thick.

    Coat wok with 1 tsp (5 mL) oil and set over medium-high heat. Add tofu and stir-fry until golden, 3 to 4 minutes.

    Pour in sauce, then add greens. Stir constantly until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.

    Serves 4.
