Broccoli Tofu

From girlichef

  • 1 block tofu, pressed in the TofuXpress overnight
  • 12 oz. broccoli, cut into florets and blanched
  • oil for frying
  • cornstarch
  • olive oil
  • garlic, minced
  • ginger, minced
  • scallions, sliced
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • honey
  • teriyaki sauce
  1. Cut tofu into cubes.
  2. Pour some cornstarch in a bowl and toss in a few cubes of tofu at a time.
  3. Shake to coat.
  4. Preheat about 2-3″ of oil in pan to ~350-375 degrees F.
  5. Carefully lower the cubes into oil.
  6. Fry until golden.
  7. In a large wok or deep nonstick skillet, heat a glug of olive oil.
  8. Add the garlic, ginger, scallions, and crushed red pepper flakes.
  9. Sauté until they begin to soften, just a couple of minutes.
  10. Drizzle in a little teriyaki sauce and a big blob of honey.
  11. Stir it and let it bubble up a bit to thicken.  If it seems too thin, add a bit more honey.
  12. Once the sauce has thickened up enough to coat the back of a spoon, toss in the reserved tofu and the blanched broccoli.
  13. Toss for a minute or two.
  14. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
