Description

To all veggie lovers, here’s a quick and easy dish for those busy weeknights, vegetarian Stir-Fry Broccoli and Baked Tofu, with garlic and Thai chili peppers, tossed in a sweet and savory sauce.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 oz.) block of extra-firm tofu
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 small bunches broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Thai chili pepper, chopped (seeded for less heat)
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • Pinch of salt
  • Cooked white or brown rice

Instructions

  1. To bake tofu: Place entire block of tofu in a toaster oven at 275 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes until brown on outside. Remove and let cool. Cut tofu into bite-sized squares and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a heavy wok on medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add in chili peppers and chopped broccoli and stir-fry for 5 minutes. Add hoisin sauce and tofu to coat, and stir-fry another 5 minutes until broccoli is just tender. Stir in pinch of salt to taste.
  3. Serve with a side of steamed white or brown rice.

Notes

  • If you want to make this gluten-free, use gluten-free Hoison sauce.
  • Make sure you use extra-firm tofu for this recipe so the tofu doesn’t fall apart. It will crisp up nicely in the oven (low fat too!).
  • Remove the seeds from the Thai chili peppers. The seeds make them extremely hot!
