Kailan with Tofu

Another easy home cook meal from me. I tried Chai Hsin with tofu before and really liked it, so decided to stir-fry it with kailan this time. It turned out very good too. I guess now I can stir-fry the tofu with various kind of different Chinese greens and can come out with a healthy and delicious dish that good eaten with rice. What best is you only need oyster sauce to season it or just salt and soy sauce would do.


  • Chinese Kailan, washed each leaf separately and cut thinly (I only used the leaves here)
  • Firmed tofu, cut like above picture
  • 1 small carrot, sliced
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • Oyster sauce to taste


1. In a wok, heat up with some oil. When hot, add in garlic and fry until fragrant but do not burn. Add in kailan and stir-fry well. Add in carrot and stir-fry for a minute.

2. Add in tofu, oyster sauce and a little water. Stir well to mix, be careful not to break the tofu too much. Dish out and serve hot.

Usually i cook with pork, if like you use tofu, it can become a vegetarian dish, healthy and delicious.

classic combo :)

i love kai lan better than chai sin, i guess cos it's more nutty

oh yum! yes, certainly a very healthy dish. I like to add lots of garlic and sometimes chili (but i suppose with kids that will be harder!)

This looks so light and delicious! The broth from the oyster sauce and water must be delicious with the tofu.
