Lazy and Hungry Tofu plus Broccoli

What you need: 

1 teaspoon veggie oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/3 of a 14 oz block extra-firm tofu
1 cup broccoli (approx; I just prepare what I think will feed me)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
sesame seeds (optional)

What you do: 

Cut tofu and broccoli into bite-size pieces.
Heat both oils over medium heat in a large skillet. Place tofu pieces in skillet and let cook for 4-5 minutes, or until golden on bottom. Cover for faster cooking.
Flip tofu pieces so that the other side can cook. Add broccoli. Pour soy sauce over tofu and broccoli. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, until broccoli is heated through and tofu is browned on the bottom.
Serve immediately over pasta, noodles, or grain of choice. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.

I also pulled up vegweb in search of something quick and easy. I just got out of work tonight and I was exhausted and didn't feel like sticking another boca burger in the microwave. I ran up to our grocery store and bought some of the stuff I was missing and this turned out wonderful! I'm eating it right now and I wish I wasn't so lazy because I want more! Thanks for sharing this!


I didn't feel like spending hours slaving away in the kitchen, and I had run out of snacks, so desperately I ran online to vegwebs and found this recipe. First off, it is the easiest tofu I have ever prepared. I was amazed. Secondly, despite this recipe's simplicity, it makes for a killer quick meal. I added mushrooms, and it was just what my lazy stomach needed. Thumbs up.
