I'm not a vegetarian but I do love tofu. One of the best tofu stir fry's I ever had was topped with a soy tahini sauce which I've recreated for the recipe I'm sharing today! Knowing how to make a great tofu & broccoli stir fry is essential. When I'm tired of chicken, pork, beef and all that - it is tofu time. So here we go!
To Give This Tofu & Broccoli Stir Fry a Kick We'll Drizzle a Sauce on Top
As previously mentioned in other blog posts, there are some foods that don't have too much flavor. Like risotto. It doesn't taste like anything. We have to make it taste like something. Same thing with tofu. We've got to add the flavor to it and there are so many options.
Just as I would with any protein like chicken, fish or beef - I season my tofu with salt and pepper when I put it in the pan. I prefer cooking my tofu in olive oil, but if you want it crispier, I suppose you could use canola or vegetable oil. Once it's finished cooking, I douse it with a couple of tablespoons of soy sauce.
The highlight of this dish, for me, is the soy tahini sauce. I love a good sauce to drizzle on my tofu to give a little extra pop of flavor. This soy tahini sauce does the trick and then some. I always make a little extra because it works as a salad dressing too!
This tofu & broccoli stir fry is a great healthy option for dinner and also reheats well for additional lunches. I like to serve it over brown rice, but basmati or quinoa would be great options too!
