Easy and Delish, Member StKulke

I love ordering Chinese greens with oyster garlic sauce from a neighborhood Thai restaurant, so was hoping this recipe would come close in flavor. It was easy, quick, and all ingredients were already in my pantry. I followed the exact proportions for the sauce in the recipe, and substituted broccolini to come closer to the Chinese greens I like, and stirred in extra firm cubed tofu, and served over brown rice. It was delicious - I might bump up the amount of oyster sauce and add a bit of garlic next time.
