Broccoli Tofu with Garlic Sauce

Broccoli Tofu with Garlic Sauce

This is one of my favorite stir-fries to order at Chinese restaurants, but it’s a risky endeavor due to animal products so I only get this at vegetarian restaurants. Here’s a quick and easy recipe to make at home that tastes just like a healthier version of the classic dish. This is perfect for people who are into garlic but you can spice it up with red pepper flakes and/or chile sauce at the end, too. As always, my favorite tofu is the super-firm kind that is easy to find these days at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods; if you don’t have access to one, pressing your tofu will make it taste best and not break apart in this dish.

Broccoli Tofu with Garlic Sauce

2 teaspoons sesame oil, divided
1 lb. super firm tofu, cubed
3 tablespoons tamari, divided
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1 lb. broccoli florets, sliced
6 - 8 scallions, sliced
1 cup vegetable broth
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
Red pepper flakes, sesame seeds, optional

Prepare rice or grain of choice.

Heat 1 teaspoon sesame oil over medium heat, and spread across a large pan. Add the tofu and two tablespoons of tamari, cooking on one side for five minutes, flip and cook for another four minutes on medium-low heat. Remove the tofu, turn the heat back up to medium, and add the second teaspoon of sesame oil. Add the broccoli, scallions, garlic, and remaining tablespoon of tamari, stirring often, for about six minutes. In a large measuring up or medium bowl, add the broth. Combine the cornstarch and water in a cup, then add to the broth, stirring until dissolved. Add to the pan with the broccoli, add the tofu, and cook for a few minutes, until the sauce is thickened. Turn off the heat, stir in the vinegar and serve over rice with red pepper flakes or sesame seeds.
