Seared Tofu with Sesame Stir-Fried Broccoli

Submitted by: MIKET78

Introduction

This is from the no meat athlete
is is a nice, light meal that is simple to prepare. To make it more filling, serve with brown rice or
another grain, or just enjoy it with a salad as a break from grains.
If your broccoli head has a stem, you can use it rather than throwing it away. Cut any stalks away from
the stem, the use a knife to cut off the fibrous outside, making four cuts so that the stalk becomes
rectangular. Turn the stalk on its side and slice into quarter-inch pieces and use the same way you
would the florets

Ingredients

    ✦ 1-pound package extra-firm tofu, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    ✦ 1 large head of broccoli, chopped into bite-size pieces (see instructions above for using stem)
    ✦ 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
    ✦ 1 tablespoon sesame oil
    ✦ 2 tablespoon coconut oil or peanut oil
    ✦ Soy sauce or Bragg amino acids, to taste

Directions

Drain the tofu, then line a large bowl with paper towels or a cloth towel. Place cubed tofu into bowl,
then press lightly with another towel to soak up as much of the moisture from the tofu as possible.
Repeat for as long as tofu is still giving up water, then set tofu aside.
Heat one tablespoon of coconut oil in a medium skillet over medium heat and add tofu cubes. Leave for
2 or 3 minutes without stirring, checking to see if bottom becomes brown and crispy. When it does, turn
the tofu over to brown on another side (with small cubes, this is tough to do, just do what you can to flip
most of the pieces onto a new side). Aer another minute or two, carefully stir the tofu cubes for 30
seconds or so to lightly heat all sides, then remove from heat, drizzle with a little soy sauce, and set
aside.
While the tofu cooks, heat remaining tablespoon of coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the sesame seeds and broccoli and stir frequently for about 5 minutes, until broccoli is tender.
Once the broccoli is cooked, add the tofu to the skillet and stir briefly to heat. Turn off the heat and
drizzle in the sesame oil and soy sauce to taste.
