Tofu & Broccoli
This is a nutrient-dense meal that can be made quickly or prepared ahead of time.
Put the tofu on a cutting board and cut it in half and then cut each half into 4 equal pieces.
Put 2 layers of paper towel on a cutting board and put the tofu on top. Put 2 layers of paper towel on top of the tofu. Place a medium weight item such as a book or cast iron skillet on top of the tofu to drain. Let drain for at least 20 minutes (and up to 2 hours).
Place a skillet over medium heat and when hot, add 2 teaspoons oil. Add the tofu, one piece at a time, and cook until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Remove the tofu to a plate and set aside.
Reheat the skillet and when it is hot, add remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Add garlic and scallions and cook until just golden, about 2 minutes. Add the broccoli and water and raise the heat to high. Cook until the broccoli is tender, about 4 minutes.
Return the tofu to the pan and add the remaining ingredients. Stir well.
Serve with a side of brown rice.
