Heat the macadamia oil in a large wok over high heat. Add the tofu, eggplant, pepper and ginger and stir-fry for 2–3 minutes until
the eggplant is soft and everything looks caramelised.
Add the choy sum and 1 tablespoon water and stir-fry for 30 seconds until it is just starting to wilt. Immediately remove the wok from the heat and toss through the tamari, carrot and celery. Leave to stand for 1 minute, then toss well and serve.
If desired, you can serve this stir-fry with raw zucchini noodles, made from 2 zucchini.
