Tofu has lots of health benefits and if prepares right is delicious!
In a hurry? I have successfully used a high quality frozen broccoli (Costco’s) that I thaw and drain on paper towel. Just add it to the almost-done tofu and heat.
Easy Teriyaki Tofu and Broccoli
- 1 cup divided teriyaki sauce store bought such as the one shown here or homemade teriyaki sauce. I sometimes use Trader Joe’s Soyaki
- 16 oz extra firm tofu
- 1/2 pound of cleaned broccoli florets
- 2 tbsp sesame oil (for frying)
- Sesame seeds, optional
- Drain and wrap the tofu in a clean kitchen towel. Put something heavy on it and refrigerate it for an hour to get as much excess water out of it as possible.
- Make the homemade teriyaki sauce. (Omit this step if using store bought sauce).
- Cut the tofu into 1 inch cubes.
- Marinate the tofu in ½ cup of the teriyaki marinade for at least 15 minutes.
- Steam the broccoli until cooked but still tender crisp.
- Stir fry the tofu in 1 tbsp of sesame oil on medium-high heat, flipping frequently until the tofu cubes become crispy on all sides. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Add 1 tbsp. sesame oil to pan and add broccoli. Stir to heat.
- Add remaining ½ cup of teriyaki sauce and tofu to pan and stir to combine and heat.
- Top with sesame seeds if desired.
- Make sure to drain and press your tofu well.
- Add the teriyaki sauce after cooking to prevent it from sticking and burning.
- Marinate the tofu for at least 15 minutes. You can marinate it a day or two in advance, but be sure to keep it refrigerated until ready to cook.
