Heat 3 tablespoons vegetable oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. While oil is heating, sprinkle cornstarch evenly into a baking dish. Place tofu on top of cornstarch and turn with fingers until evenly coated. When the skillet is hot, add tofu in a single layer and cook until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn tofu with tongs and cook until the second side is browned, 4 to 6 minutes more. Add glaze ingredients and cook, stirring, until glaze is thick and tofu is coated, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer tofu to plate;
Heat 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in a now-empty skillet over medium-high heat until beginning to smoke. Add cauliflower and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup broth and cover skillet; cook until cauliflower is just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Uncover and cook until liquid evaporates, about 30 seconds.
Add sugar snap peas, courgettes (zucchini) and bok choy stems and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown and soften 1 to 2 minutes. Add leafy greens and cook, stirring frequently, until wilted, about 1 minute. Push vegetables to sides of skillet to clear center; add garlic-ginger mixture to clearing and cook, mashing mixture with spoon or spatula, until fragrant, 15 to 20 seconds, then stir mixture into greens.
Return the tofu with the sauce to the pan. Toss to combine and cook, stirring, until sauce is thickened and vegetables are coated, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter, and serve immediately.
