. Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add carrot and onion; stir-fry 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add to tofu; keep warm. Heat remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil in pan. Add bok choy and garlic; stir-fry 2 minutes or until crisp tender. Add broth mixture; cook 30 seconds or until thick, stirring constantly. Stir in tofu mixture. Sprinkle with peanuts.
