Stir-Fried Tofu with Greens and Cashews
Woks are ideal for cooking greens because you can see exactly when they are done. This recipe packs a garlicky punch. Be sure to drain tofu well or it will stick to the wok.

|1 lb.||extra-firm tofu, drained|
|1/2 cups||raw cashew pieces (2 1/2 oz)|
|2 tbsp.||olive oil|
|6 cloves||garlic, finely chopped (2 tbsp)|
|2 tbsp.||soy sauce (or tamari)|
|3/4 cups||vegetable broth|
|2 tbsp.||vegetable broth|
|1 1/2 lb.||Swiss chard, cut into 2" pieces|
|3 tsp.||black pepper, freshly ground|
- Line large plate with paper towels. Cut tofu in half lengthwise and set on paper towels. Top with another plate and heavy can. Let drain 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in dry wok, cook cashews over low heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly toasted, about 3 minutes. Transfer to plate; set aside.
- Cut tofu into 1/2-inch cubes. Set wok over high heat and add 1 1/2 tablespoon oil. Add tofu cubes and stir-fry until golden, about 4 minutes.
- Add 1/2 tablespoon garlic and stir-fry 1 minute.
- Add soy sauce and 1/4 cup broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer 4 minutes. Transfer to medium bowl; set aside. Rinse and dry wok.
- Set wok over high heat and add 1 teaspoon oil. Add 1/2 tablespoon garlic and stir-fry 30 seconds. Add about one-third of the greens, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper and stir quickly to blend. Gradually drizzle 2 tablespoons broth around outer perimeter of greensnot in the center. (This technique creates steam so the greens cook more quickly.) Stir-fry until greens are tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to large bowl.
- Repeat step 6 two more times until all greens are cooked. Drain greens, discarding any liquid.
- Return wok to high heat and combine all greens, reserved tofu mixture and toasted cashews. Add remaining 1/4 cup broth and stir-fry until heated through, about 30 seconds.
- Serve hot.
