Step 3: Cover the bowl and microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes.
Step 4: Carefully remove bowl and using your spoon, mix tofu and add your greens. Cover again and pop back into the microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds more on HIGH.
Step 5: Remove and sprinkle sliced scallions over the top of the dish, if desired.
