Tofu & Broccoli

Here’s one classic vegan fare that’s as flavorful as it is light and healthy. I have this on my personal menu at least once every couple of months. Sort of comfort food, actually.

Ingredients (4 Servings):
1 14 oz. pkg. Firm Tofu, cubed and liquid strained
2 heads Broccoli, chopped and stalks discarded
3-4 cloves of Garlic
1 Tsp. Chinese Five Spice
1 Tbs. Canola Oil
Salt & Pepper
2 Tbs. Sesame Oil
4 Tbs. Scallions, finely chopped

Directions:
Steam broccoli to al dente, about 3 minutes. Meanwhile, sweat garlic in canola oil over a medium-low heated pan, about 5 minutes. Add the tofu, five spice and salt & pepper to taste. Toss to combine and turn off heat. Now, add the broccoli, drizzle with sesame oil and toss one more time. Garnish with chopped scallions. Serve with steamed jasmine rice.
