SCTK: Brown Rice Bowl with Lemongrass, Tofu, and Cashews

By Caroline Patrick, Graduate Nutrition Student

Another cold night and another warm meal with excellent company. At this week’s Test Kitchen, we made a delicious rice bowl filled with the cutest baby bok choy. The finished dish was so green and vibrant in stark contrast to the white and 50 shades of grey color scheme we’ve seen so much lately. Why couldn’t Phil have seen his shadow on the 2nd?! I was ready for spring weeks ago.

Bok choy, or Chinese cabbage, is part of the Brassicaceae family of vegetables. Can you imagine what fun family reunions the Brassicaceae’s must have? Everyone would be there—broccoli, radishes, cauliflower—I mean come on, pass the dip! Bok choy is a hearty cabbage that prefers cooler temperatures, making them the perfect mid-winter veggie to turn to (lucky for us with this unyielding cold).

Tackling the tofu is the first step to this one-bowl-meal. Be sure to squeeze as much liquid out of it as possible so that it can soak up more soy-sauce and cook faster. It will be ready for the bok choy mix when the edges are browned. Instead of mixing the rice in with everything else, we just piled the veggie-tofu mixture on top of some rice. The bok choy paired beautifully with the ginger, lemongrass, and lime juice, and the toasted cashews added the perfect crunch. It was delecta-bowl.

Brown Rice Bowl with Lemongrass, Tofu, and Cashews

Recipe modified from the kitchn

Yield: 4 servings


8 ounces extra firm tofu
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce, divided
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
½ onion, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons grated lemongrass (white part only)
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pinch to ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
4 cups Bok Choy, chopped, approximately 2-inch pieces
3 cups cooked brown rice (Basmati preferred)
¼ cup cashews, toasted and coarsely chopped
¼ cup coarsely chopped cilantro leaves


  1. Cook brown rice according to package directions. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Rinse and drain tofu. Place between paper towels (or clean kitchen towels) and press out liquid.
  3. Cut tofu into ½-inch cubes and toss in a bowl with 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce.
  4. Lightly oil a baking sheet and spread the tofu cubes evenly on the sheet. Bake tofu for 15 minutes and flip over. Continue baking for about 10-15 minutes more until tofu is toasted and chewy. Remove from the oven.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion, lemongrass, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring frequently, until onions are beginning to soften and turn translucent. Add Bok Choy and cook until stalks are tender-crisp and leaves are wilted (~3 minutes).
  6. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce and lime juice and scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add rice and tofu and stir to combine and heat through. Remove from heat, stir in cashews and cilantro, and serve.

When is an SEO agency considered good?

You may have hired an SEO agency because someone advised you to do so to optimize your website, but you are unsure of the agency’s performance for your company. These are some of the key points that help you analyze their work.

SERP rank improvement

Slightly recap: SERP stands for search engine result page. the page that displays results after a search query has been entered.
Before hiring your SEO agency partner, it is crucial to have recorded your page ranking. If you haven’t, do so right away so that you can use it to your advantage in the future. Analyzing how your website ranks in comparison to competing websites is also important. Once you understand these key points you can easily determine whether or not your SEO agency is performing well.

Organic traffic growth

Ask yourself whether your website is generating enough traffic to mutually increase your conversion rate to sales and revenues. Or do you have an increase in traffic without a final destination to a specific page of your website? If this is the case then you should reconsider your SEO agency.

Audience targeting

Are you using a differentiated marketing strategy or an undifferentiated marketing strategy? It’s important that you make this decision and properly inform the Seo agency afterward. The SEO agency will then use those high-intent keywords that your audience is most likely to use so your website is the first to pop up when searching for those keywords. Try it by yourself to test whether your website will be the first to pop up on search results or not.

Do we know you may be asking how much a Seo Agency charges?

The answer to this question is not as simple as 1+1=2, but rather depends on some variables, including budget, goals for SEO, client company size, service provider, and SEO strategy. Seo in Malta typically costs clients between $500 and $5,000 per month, though this can vary based on the needs of the client.

Although many businesses are offering SEO services in Malta, the field has grown quickly in recent years, and you might still be unsure which is the best. Numerous articles recommending or rating SEO agencies in Malta can be found online. Anyhow as aforementioned, you should know what to ask from your agency, what your business needs are, and where your budget stands so you can make the right choices depending on your point of view…

I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed your blog post about the SCTK: Brown Rice Bowl with Lemongrass, Tofu, and Cashews. I’ve been looking for a new and healthy recipe to try, and this one definitely fits the bill. I love the combination of flavors in this dish, and the tofu is cooked perfectly. I also appreciate the fact that you included a step-by-step recipe, so I can easily recreate this dish at home.
