Baby Bok Choy and Tofu in Marmalade Sauce

1/4 cup orange marmalade
2 tbs low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp cornstarch
2 tbs canola oil
3 cloves garlic, thickly sliced
1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and julienned
2 (8 oz) packages plain or Asian-flavored baked tofu, drained and cubed (2 cups)
6 dried hot red chiles (such as chiles de arbol*), or 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 pound baby bok choy, cut into 1-inch lengths (5 cups)
1/3 cup toasted unsalted cashews

1. Whisk together marmalade, soy sauce, cornstarch, and 2 Tbs. water in small bowl. Set aside.

2. Heat wok over high heat, until water droplets evaporate within 1 second. Add oil, then garlic and ginger. Stir-fry 2 minutes. Add tofu and chiles; stir-fry 3 minutes, or until tofu cubes are browned. Add bok choy, and stir-fry 2 minutes, or until bok choy starts to soften. Stir in marmalade mixture, and cook 2 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Stir in cashews.

Serve over rice.

*Chiles de arbol can be very hot. Be careful while cooking. Even the steam can carry the spice–leading to coughing and the need to air out the house.
