Description

In less time than it takes to order and bring home take-out, you can pan-fry tofu until crisp, simmer broccoli florets, and bring them together with a lightly sweet soy and sesame sauce (which is generous enough to spoon over rice). Whether you're cooking vegetarian or gluten-free, or you just want a healthy choice, this one's a keeper for weeknight dinners. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Sara Mellas.

    Made it as close to the directions as possible and it was DELICIOUS! Would highly recommend

    The recipe turned out great! We used extra garlic and ginger and used arrowroot starch as a thickener instead of cornstarch. The broccoli soaks up the sauce perfectly!

    it turned out well, but my pan was still too hot when I added the sauce so it got way to think. just cut it with broth and it was all good.

    So yummy. Followed directions exactly. Couldn't find tamari so I used soy sauce instead.

    Really good. Great flavors in the sauce. I didn't dry out the tofu enough, but it was still tasty and enjoyable.
