Add broth and gingerroot to wok and heat to boiling. Add bok choy; cover and cook until tender and most of broth evaporates--about 5 minutes.
 
Meanwhile, prepare Sauce. In small bowl, combine vegetable broth, oyster-flavored sauce, soy sauce, cornstarch, sugar and sesame oil.
 
With slotted spoon or pancake turner, remove bok choy and place, cut sides down, around rim of platter with tofu; cover and keep warm. Discard ginger slices and any remaining broth.
 
Reheat wok over high heat until hot. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the mushrooms. Stir-fry mushrooms until softened--about 3 minutes. Restir Sauce and pour over mushrooms; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Transfer mushrooms from Sauce and place over tofu. Pour Sauce over all. Garnish with green onions, if desired.
