Tofu & Broccoli in Peanut Sauce
Health Highlights


1 head Broccoli, raw (stalk removed and separated into florets)
1 tbsp minced Ginger root
2 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
1/2 tsp Hot sauce (Asian- such as sambal oelek)
1 tsp Sesame oil
1 tbsp Sesame seeds (toasted)
4 tbsp Peanut butter, natural
2 tbsp Soy sauce, low sodium
2 stalk(s) Green onion (thinly sliced)
1 package (1lb) Tofu, regular, extra firm (cut & sliced)
2 tsp Apple cider vinegar


Between paper towels, pat tofu dry. Brush baking sheet with 1 tsp of olive oil. Arrange tofu on pan; brush remaining olive oil over top. Broil, about 8 inches (20 cm) from heat in the oven, until crisp and dry looking - about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in steamer, cover and steam broccoli until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.

To make Peanut Sauce:

In small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil and hot sauce; slowly whisk in 1/4 cup hot water. Stir in spring onions.

Serve tofu over broccoli. Drizzle with peanut sauce; sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Serve with parboiled rice for a complete meal.
