Easy Teriyaki Tofu and Broccoli

If you click on one of my recommended item links and then place an order through Amazon, I receive a small commission on that sale, at no extra expense to you.

Trader Joe’s has a similar sauce.

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
  1. 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.
  2. Make the homemade teriyaki sauce. (Omit this step if using store bought sauce).
  3. Cut the tofu into 1 inch cubes.
  4. Marinate the tofu in ½ cup of the teriyaki marinade for at least 15 minutes.
  5. Steam the broccoli until cooked but still tender crisp.
  6. 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.
  7. Add 1 tbsp. sesame oil to pan and add broccoli. Stir to heat.
  8. Add remaining ½ cup of teriyaki sauce and tofu to pan and stir to combine and heat.
  9. Top with sesame seeds if desired.

Pro Tips:

  • 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.
