Tofu and Broccoli stir fry is a tasty dish that you can cook for lunch or dinner. The good thing about this recipe is its ease in preparation and the ingredients are readily available in most supermarkets.
As I mentioned, this dish is easy to make. All you need are slices of extra-firm tofu and broccoli florets. The tofu needs to be fried first until the texture of the outer part becomes crisp. Once this is done, you can stir-fry all the ingredients.
This is best served with rice. Any kind of rice will be a good fit. Sometimes I like it with steamed white rice, while there are days wherein I eat tofu and broccoli stir fry with brown rice. There are times when I crave for this dish along with Yang chow fried rice.
