Prep Time: 30 minutes
Starting at the base of the cabbage, slice only the pale-green parts into ½ inch ribbons. Set the leafy-green parts aside and use at another time for a salad or slaw.
Thoroughly pat the tofu dry and and cut into large cubes.
Mix together the scallions, ginger, 2 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon soy sauce, vinegar, and ¼ teaspoon salt in a bowl. Add more salt, if needed. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes to let the flavors come together.
In a large sauté pan over high flame, heat the remaining oil until hot. Add the tofu and cook until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes.
Carefully transfer tofu to a plate. Add the cabbage and garlic to the pan. Cook, tossing occasionally, until cabbage is wilted and browned in some spots, about 5 minutes. Stir in 2 teaspoons soy sauce and cook until evaporated.
Divide cabbage between two plates and top with tofu and ginger scallion sauce.
